Adrian Martinez suffered a knee injury in Nebraska’s season-opening loss to Colorado. The play was a controversial one, as the Huskers later revealed that they sent in video of the play to be reviewed. Nebraska released the video that was sent in on Wednesday.
Nebraska head coach Scott Frost updated Martinez’s status for this Saturday’s game earlier in the week. He said that Martinez was taking things day by day and that a decision on playing could be made at game time.
Frost had another update on Martinez this afternoon. Not much has changed.
Martinez continues to be evaluated. Frost added that a decision on his status for Saturday could be made “two minutes” before kickoff.
“Scott Frost said he might make a decision on Adrian Martinez ‘2 minutes before kickoff.’ Said Martinez will warm up at the very least. Said decision to play or not play Martinez will be ‘strictly physical,’” Sam McKewon tweeted.

Martinez played really well in the Week 1 loss to Colorado. He threw for more than 180 yards and rushed for more than 110 yards. Martinez had a couple of costly turnovers, but that was probably expected considering it was his first college game.
Nebraska is looking to rebound from that loss this weekend. The Huskers are set to host Troy.
