Nebraska had a relatively easy win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday, but the victory did not come without a hefty price. On Monday, the Cornhuskers stated that defensive end Randy Gregory is doubtful for week two after injuring his knee in the 55-7 win.
According to Sportsline.com, Bo Pelini said that the injury was minor, therefore, Nebraska is just keeping the preseason All-Big Ten defensive end out of harms way when the Huskers take on McNeese State on Saturday.
According to Steven M. Sipple of The Lincoln Journal-Star, Gregory’s injury is an old injury to the left knee and it just happen to flare up during the game. Randy Gregory also had a minor procedure done, so hopefully he’s ready to be back for the game with Fresno State the following week.
Although it doesn’t seem like a big deal for Nebraska at the moment, it’s not like the Cornhuskers can’t be concerned with every game. If Gregory was 100 percent healthy, he would be in uniform this weekend. However, Nebraska will have to take the wait and see approach until he is fully recovered.
During Monday’s press conference captain Ameer Abdullah spoke to the media and he left a few poignant remarks. Steven Sipple tweeted that Ameer Abdullah believes they are not good enough to take anyone lightly. Abdullah did more than speak on Saturday. His actions were very loud when he ran for 232 yards on 21 carries. His day included one touchdown run for No. 22 ranked Huskers.
