Nebraska running back Tre Bryant needed help walking off the field during the game Saturday against Oregon. Bryant had 107 rushing yards and a touchdown before going down with the injury.
Bryant walked to the sideline early in the fourth quarter after getting attended to on the field at Autzen Stadium. Bryant appeared to favor his knee. He later was up and walking around.
After the game, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said he won’t say much until he finds out more about the extent of the injury. But he did say it is a knee injury.
“I don’t know for sure,” Riley said. “I did get a little bit better news than what I thought about [Tre Bryant]. It’s a knee for sure. I shouldn’t say anything until I know more. I hope he’s alright.”
Before the injury, Bryant impressed former Huskers star Ameer Abdullah. The ex-Nebraska running back tweeted that he wasn’t as good as Bryant.
In the Huskers’ 43-36 season-opening win against Arkansas State, Bryant rushed for 192 yards and a touchdown on 31 attempts.
