Husker Football Tuesday Practice Report

The Nebraska Football team practiced for two hours in full pads Tuesday inside of the Hawks Championship Center.


After the practice, Offensive Coordinator Shawn Watson spoke on the current quarterback situation.


“This is a big week for the guys,” Watson said. “This is a week where we are putting the guys through situational things in terms of the game of football. The competitions have been really close, and I feel like we have gotten much better. They've all done well and have been able to manage the aspects of the offense.”


Watson also spoke on the good play that the wide receivers have been showing during fall camp.


“They've really shown improvement,” Watson said. “Niles (Paul) continues to up his game. (Brandon Kinnie) is probably the guy that has really come the farthest. He really started evolving last year into a really good football player, and he has really continued that and is chasing (Paul). They've been really good for each other. Mike McNeill also continues to make plays. I feel really good about those guys.”


The Huskers return to the practice field Wednesday morning for the first of two practices.
