Adrian Martinez remains questionable to play at Minnesota

Scott Frost didn’t give much away when talking about the status of Nebraska’s starting quarterback Adrian Martinez. The sophomore injured his knee on the final play of the 3rd quarter against Northwestern on Saturday.

“If Adrian (Martinez) is healthy, he will go,” Frost said Monday. “If he isn’t, then we feel great about where else we are. Well, we have a week to help to see where Adrian (Martinez) is.

“But, we feel comfortable if we have to go with Noah (Vedral) and Luke (McCaffrey). Both of those guys got lots of reps today, and they have been repping a lot all through the fall, so if it ends up being them we’re fine. But we will wait to see where Adrian (Martinez) is.”

Wahoo native and backup quarterback Noah Vedral says he feels prepared to take the reins if Martinez can’t go against the Gophers. 

“If Adrian [Martinez] is ready to go, that’s awesome, hoping for the best for him,” Vedral said. “Myself and the quarterbacks, we’ll be ready, when we need to be and if we need to be.” 

The Huskers take on Minnesota at 6:30 p.m. on FS1.
