Burkhead Listed as Day-to-Day

Posted by: Matt Lothrop


Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said senior running back Rex Burkhead is day-to-day after Burkhead re-aggravated his left knee injury this past weekend against Northwestern. The injury, which originally occurred in week one against Southern Miss, has plagued Burkhead for most of his senior season.

Pelini said he will “proceed cautiously” and that Burkhead was better Sunday and even better on Monday. Coach Pelini also indicated that he could possibly hold Burkhead out of Saturday's pivotal Legends Division match-up with Michigan saying, “we'd probably be inclined to rest him for a week, but I can't really say how it's going to play out.”

Burkhead did not practice Monday.
