Injuries May Hurt Huskers Against Michigan State

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

The injuries that are plaguing the Husker football team may be the undoing of their chances of winning against Michigan State.

As of Thursday, head coach Bo Pelini stated that it was doubtful that Mike Moudy would be able to play on Saturday’s game. Moudy, an offensive guard for the Huskers, injured one of his shoulders and now joins Jeremiah Sirles that are unlikely to play in the game against the Spartans.

In addition, it is unclear what the status of Jake Cotton is right now. Cotton did not participate in a few of the workouts that occurred during practice, but it is still uncertain how much he missed out on and if he will be allowed to play on Saturday.

Jamal Turner is another player who may not be seen on this upcoming game. He is considered to be about 50-50 currently and will be a game time decision.

When asked about which players would be participating in the upcoming game, Pelini stated “It’s hard to say right now. We’ve had some guys that are iffy. We’ll see come game time.”
