Nebraska WR Jordan Westerkamp Is Out For The Music City Bowl

The Huskers could be missing their quarterback and top wideout vs. Tennessee.

Nebraska senior wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp will miss the Music City Bowl vs. Tennessee.

Westerkamp, perhaps the Huskers' best wide receiver, has to have surgery on his knee.

"(He) hurt his knee in practice," Nebraska head coach Mike Riley told reporters today. "He has surgery scheduled as we speak and will not play in the (bowl) game (vs. Tennessee)."

"We hate to lose Jordan. It was a non-contact injury, he was making a cut."

Westerkamp is expected to make a full recovery, which will take about three months.

Nebraska could also be without starting quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. in the game against Tennessee. Armstrong is dealing with a hamstring injury suffered earlier in the regular season.

The Huskers and the Volunteers are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. on Dec. 30. The game will be televised on ESPN.
