Nebraska running back/wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson has been a vital piece of Nebraska’s offense this season. Unfortunately, the versatile freshman has also been battling injuries that have limited some of his effectiveness.
The latest update on the state of his health may not be too reassuring ahead of their huge game against Wisconsin.
According to Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald, Robinson’s status has been dubbed “very questionable” by offensive coordinator Troy Walters.
Robinson missed the end of Nebraska’s Week 10 game against Purdue with a leg injury. But the Huskers had a bye last week that would have given him time to recover.
Nebraska RB/WR Wan’Dale Robinson very questionable for Saturday’s game, per OC Troy Walters. NU doesn’t often concede that, so take note. #huskers

Robinson is Nebraska’s third leading rusher with 326 rushing yards and second leading receiver with 40 receptions for 453 yards. He leads the team with 779 yards from scrimmage and is second on the team with five total touchdowns.
The Huskers are on a three-game losing streak and need two more wins to be bowl eligible.
But getting a win over anyone – let alone the mighty Wisconsin Badgers – will be much harder without Robinson.
Can Nebraska pull off the upset over Wisconsin this weekend?
