Nebraska coach Mike Riley gave out his weekly list of player injuries on Monday, and it contained all the usual names. That still includes running back Tre Bryant.
The sophomore needed help walking off the field in the fourth quarter of Nebraska’s Week 2 loss to Oregon, and he has not seen the field since. Bryant is still on Nebraska’s injured list instead of the depth chart.
“That’s a real mystery there,” Riley said.
Riley was cautious when a reporter asked him about potentially redshirting Bryant, but he did not rule it out.
“We’re going to be very careful with every decision made about Tre Bryant,” Riley said. “First of all, we want him to feel good and play healthy if he does indeed play again. The next part of redshirting would be a discussion with our staff and his family.”
