We're about 30 minutes away from kickoff in Lincoln, Neb., where Nebraska is set to host Troy for its second game of the season. Of course, all eyes are on Huskers' freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez in warmups.

Where do things stand injury-wise with Martinez as we approach kickoff? Here's the latest.

Nebraska head coach Scott Frost just told the Big Ten Network that the Huskers are going to let Martinez warm up. They'll see how Martinez, who is recovering from a knee injury, looks before kickoff.

Then, the Huskers will make a final decision.

"We're going to let him warm up and see where he is, so we haven't made a final determination yet," Frost said.

Frost had said earlier in the week that a final decision on Martinez might not be made until a minute or two 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 is the only scholarship quarterback on the Nebraska roster this season. The Huskers were forced to play a walk-on when he went down against Colorado last weekend.

Nebraska and Troy are set to kick off at noon.
