It looks like Nebraska will be without two key offensive players on Saturday.
Coach Mike Riley said at a press conference Monday that WR Alonzo Moore is doubtful for the home game against Illinois because of a shoulder injury and RG Tanner Farmer is “likely out” with a high ankle sprain.
Tanner Farmer and Alonzo Moore are doubtful for this week. Farmer likely out. #Huskers

The No. 15 Huskers, who are 21-point favorites against Illinois, have a bye after they play the Illini.
Moore, a senior, has been a big-play threat for Nebraska this year, catching 12 passes for 310 yards and two scores through four games. Last year, he scored six TDs on just 24 catches.
Moore has caught exactly three passes in each game this season and has been held under 70 yards in just one.
Farmer, a sophomore, redshirted in 2014 and did not appear in a game last season but won the Huskers starting right guard job in camp.
