The Nebraska football team concluded its second two-a-day on the grass fields of the Ed and Joyanne Gass practice facility located next to the Hawks Championship Center Monday. The second practice of the day saw the Huskers practice for 2 1/2 hours in full pads. The Huskers’ first practice, which was mainly focused on special teams, started at 7 a.m. in Memorial Stadium. Head Coach Bo Pelini said he liked the enthusiasm at today’s practices and thought his players were competing well.
“I thought our guys were out there competing today. It was a good and spirited practice. It kind of went back and forth a little bit,” Pelini said. “We’re getting a lot done and our guys are getting better.”
Several players were held out of today’s second session of camp with minor injuries, but none of them seem to be serious according to Pelini.
“It’s kind of where you are at camp. There are some nicks and bruises, but nothing real long term. It’s what to be expected at this point. It’s that time of year and that time of camp where guys are going and it’s physical. It’s a physical game and you’re going to get nicks and bruises, but for the most part our guys are playing through it.”
The Nebraska football team continues fall practice tomorrow with a workout scheduled for 3:45 p.m. Also, the Nebraska football team will be hosting Fan Day at Memorial Stadium this Sunday, from 2-3:30 p.m. Check back later this week for more details on Huskers.com.
