Losing to Colorado at home was crushing in its own right, but the real concern in Nebraska is the status of quarterback Adrian Martinez. Well, Scott Frost didn't hold back from updating the media on the entire situation during his press conference today.
Martinez suffered an ugly knee injury in the Cornhuskers' season opener, but his absence might not last very long.
Frost announced that his freshman quarterback is currently listed as day to day. With an upcoming matchup against Troy this weekend, it's possible that Martinez could play.
The dual-threat quarterback had an impressive debut, before he left the field with an injury. He was dynamic on the ground with 117 rushing yards and two touchdowns, yet he also proved himself through the air, finishing with 187 passing yards and another score.
Clearly, Frost isn't pleased with the tackle that hurt his gunslinger. In fact, the head coach for Nebraska said that they have filed a complaint on the player that injured Martinez.
The Cornhuskers are fortunate enough that Martinez's injury wasn't too severe.
If he's ready to go this Saturday, it'll be interesting to see if he makes alterations to his playing style.
