Nebraska football coach Scott Frost spoke with reporters on Tuesday and provided updates on his team as it goes through spring practices.
Specifically, Frost addressed the status of his injured players, including nose tackle Mick Stoltenberg and running back Greg Bell. Neither player took part in practice on Tuesday, but Frost said that their injuries are not “major.”
“Nothing major. Sometimes when you push yourself past what you’re used to pushing yourself, your body can break down a little bit,” Frost said. “That’s kind of what’s happening to us right now. I think these guys are working harder than they have in the past. Shoot, if I went out and ran one 400, I’d probably lock up to. That’s good. That’s natural. They have a few little things, but for the most part, we’ve been healthy this spring.”
Based off what Frost articulated, it appears that Bell and Stoltenberg just needed a day to let their bodies recover from the intense workouts and conditioning they’re going through.
In addition, Tre Bryant did not practice today, either. Injuries have kept players like Bryant limited through spring practice, and they will keep JoJo Domann (knee) and Luke Gifford (hip) out for the rest of spring practices.
Nebraska’s Spring Game will take place on Saturday, April 21, at Memorial Stadium.
