The Huskers have a major road test this weekend as they take on the undefeated Minnesota Golden Gophers. That task may become a lot harder if quarterback Adrian Martinez isn't ready to go with his knee injury.

As of Thursday, it would appear that Martinez's status is still very much in the air.

Speaking to the media, Nebraska head coach Scott Frost revealed that Martinez will make the trip to Minneapolis. But beyond that, he wouldn't comment on whether Martine would start.

In fact, four of Nebraska's available quarterbacks - Martinez, sophomore Noah Vedral, freshman Luke McCaffrey, and junior Andrew Bunch - are set to make the trip.

Martinez injured his knee in Nebraska's Week 6 win over Northwestern. Vedral finished the game as Martinez went to the lockers

Frost has maintained that the injury isn't serious, but his silence on Martinez's status is quite interesting.

Martinez is currently completing 60.3-percent of his passes at 8.5 yards per attempt. But he is on pace for fewer touchdowns and more interceptions than he had as a freshman last year.

Beating a 5-0 Minnesota team that is already favored in the game will only become harder if the starting quarterback doesn't get enough reps before.

The game will be played at 7:30 p.m. EST and will air on FS1.
