Will Tommy Armstrong Jr. play against Minnesota?

Nebraska head coach Mike Riley provided another update on the status of his quarterback, Tommy Armstrong, during the Big Ten coaches' teleconference call this morning.

Riley says Armstrong remains "day-to-day" and that he's "pretty well on track" with his recovery.

Will Armstrong play against Minnesota this weekend? The Huskers are hopeful, but nothing has been decided.

Armstrong, a senior, suffered what looked to be a brutal injury in the first half of Nebraska's 62-3 loss at Ohio State on Saturday night.

Many feared the worst with this, but he ended up only having a concussion. He later returned to the field in street clothes after going to the hospital.

Nebraska (7-2) is set to host Minnesota at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb. on Saturday night. The game is set to be televised on Big Ten Network and will kick off at 7:30 p.m. E.T.

An official update on Armstrong's status for the game will likely come out later this week.
