Husker Quarterback Ailing

Husker Quarterback Ailing

The focus of Nebraska’s turbulent week has switched from that leaked audio of coach Bo Pelini’s profane rant against fans two years ago to the team’s tenuous quarterback situation.

Fourth-year starter Taylor Martinez is doubtful for Saturday’s game against South Dakota State because of a turf toe injury that has kept him out of practice all week. Coach Bo Pelini said Thursday night that redshirt freshman Tommy Armstrong Jr. would probably start against the Football Championship Subdivision Jackrabbits (3-0).

The Huskers (2-1) are coming off a 41-21 loss to UCLA in a game they led by 18 points in the second quarter.
