Really the only negatives to come out of the Nebraska Cornhuskers spring game was  a pair of what Matt Rhule termed "significant" injuries. Rhule said that defensive back Blye Hill and wide receiver Demetrius Bell suffered very similar injuries, which was interesting if only because they got hurt just a few plays apart.

Just how long either player will be out is still a mystery. It likely will be until fall camp opens and we get an update on whether Blye or Bell is expected to participate in practice. But for Blye, the transfer defensive back, who the Nebraska football coaches talked about as a possible starter, is taking things in stride.

Hill took to social media on Monday to offer an update. 

"Despite the injury had a great first spring ball," Blye wrote while also posting four pictures of the game, including one showing him getting on a cart to be taken off the field. "Can’t wait to get back on the field with this team. Be back soon"

Blye's certainly got the right approach. Here's hoping he is back soon. He's supposed to be an impact player for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Speaking of injury news, the Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball team is going to be without one of its best players for a while. Cayden Brumbaugh suffered a hand injury during Friday's game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. 

Luckily, head coach Will Bolt told the media he doesn't believe the injury is too severe. Of course, he also doesn't know when Brumbaugh will be back.

Chief Borders is officially the first Nebraska Cornhuskers football player to enter the transfer portal. The former Florida transfer enters the portal just one day ahead of the deadline. There will almost certainly be some waiting around by Nebraska Cornhuskers fans to see if anyone else goes in at the last minute.
