Weather Forces Huskers Indoors
"We came inside about halfway through the practice," Assistant Head Coach Turner Gill said. "There were some lightning strikes nearby and as the storm moved into the area we moved inside for the safety of our players and coaches."
Gill said the squad is weary after 17 practices in a period of less than two weeks. However, the coaches are happy with the mental approach of the players.
"The guys are a little bit tired, their legs are tired, but we knew that would be the case," Gill said. "Mentally, they are in good shape, and they are working hard and that's all we can ask. They will get their legs back soon, so all we can ask is that they stay focused and work through it right now."
Sophomore defensive tackle Le Kevin Smith went through both practices on Monday after missing some time with an injury. Nebraska continues fall camp with a single practice on Tuesday afternoon and will conduct its final two-a-day session on Wednesday.
