Nebraska’s Mike Riley is ‘hopeful’ Tommy Armstrong Jr. will play


Last weekend, Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. was knocked unconscious after his head slammed into the turf. Shortly afterwards, Armstrong returned to the stadium in his hospital scrubs and cheered on his team.

While the injury was terrifying, Armstrong could be back on the field as early as this weekend.

Nebraska coach Mike Riley was speaking to reporters when he said Armstrong is “day-to-day” and that the Cornhuskers are “hopeful” the quarterback will be back under center on Saturday.

Nebraska hopes to rebound from its 62-3 drubbing courtesy of Ohio State this weekend when Minnesota travels to Lincoln. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.
