Nebraska’s play thus far has been perfect this season. Apparently, its timing is perfect, too.
With the Cornhuskers are on a bye this weekend, coach Mike Riley told Mark Packer on his Sirius XM radio show on Friday that if Nebraska did have a game, he doesn’t know whether QB Tommy Armstrong would be able to play.
Interesting comment from HC Mike Riley with @MarkPacker:
"If we were playing this week I don’t know if Tommy (Armstrong) could play."

Riley noted earlier in the week Armstrong had a sprained ankle and was in a walking boot. Armstrong re-aggravated his ankle injury in last week’s win over Illinois.
The No. 12 Huskers are 5-0 overall and 2-0 in Big Ten play. The West Division leaders return to action Oct. 15 at Indiana.
Armstrong has been great so far this season, throwing for 1,151 yards, 9 touchdowns and 2 two interceptions through five games. Backup Ryker Fyfe has completed 2 of 5 passes for 41 yards and a score in limited action this season.
