NASHVILLE, Tenn. — There’s a very, very, very small chance Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong takes some snaps on Friday in the Music City Bowl.
While the senior didn’t necessarily open the door to that discussion on Wednesday when he spoke briefly to the media, he did say he’s about 75- to 80-percent healthy. Armstrong added that he didn’t know if he’ll suit up or not on Friday. And even if he does, he’d be an emergency option for Ryker Fyfe or backup Zack Darlington in order to preserve freshman Patrick O’Brien’s redshirt.
Armstrong’s been dealing with a hamstring injury for more than a month. He hurt it while diving into the end zone against Minnesota on Nov. 12. He said during the 40-10 loss to Iowa, the injury got worse.
Armstrong said he’s still considering entering the NFL Draft and said he’d be willing to play quarterback, running back or wide receiver. He’s still weighing his options.
We’ll have more from Nebraska practice soon.
