Nebraska expecting Taylor Martinez to return for Illinois game
Nebraska will get starting quarterback Taylor Martinez back on Oct. 5 to open the Big Ten season against Illinois.
Nebraska senior quarterback Taylor Martinez, who missed Saturday's win over South Dakota State with turf toe, is expected to be available for the Huskers' Big Ten opener against Illinois on Oct. 5, according to a team source.
Martinez missed practice time last week and Tommy Armstrong threw for 169 yards and a touchdown in his absence.
In three games, Martinez is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 528 yards, nine touchdowns and one interception.
The performance of Armstrong, a redshirt freshman, was encouraging. He could be the future. But Martinez should be healthy after the bye week and ready to lead the Huskers
