Senior running back Rex Burkhead, had some preseason hype for Heisman run. In his second carry from scrimmage was a 57 yard touchdown run. Burkhead, and Nebraska’s season may have taken a dramatic change with his third carry. The talented Plano, TX. native came up limping off the field after a 6 yard run.
Burkhead is done for the day, and has a sprained MCL, according to ABC. There has not been word on how sever the injury is, and obviously with Burkhead sitting on the sidelines, doctors have not had time to take a real close look at the injury.
Burkhead finishes the day with 3 carries, for 68 yards, and 1 touchdown.
Other injuries include wide receiver Tim Marlowe who left game with an arm injury.
Also defensive end Jason Ankrah has left the game after taking a helmet to the knee.
