Rex Burkhead won't need surgery on injured knee
The Nebraska running back won't need surgery on his injured knee but is questionable to face UCLA.
<img style=Nebraska" data-canon="Nebraska Cornhuskers" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_TEAM" id="shortcode0"> got some good news and bad news on Monday.
The good news is that running back Rex Burkhead will not need surgery on the knee he injured during the Cornhusker's season-opening victory over Southern Miss on Saturday. The bad news is, surgery or no surgery, Burkhead is still questionable to play this weekend against UCLA.
“We have a lot of confidence in those backs,” Pelini said. “They’re talented guys. I like how they played, how they responded.”
In Saturday's win that trio combined to rush for 177 yards and a touchdown. Burkhead finished the day with 68 yards and a touchdown of his own on only three carries before having to leave the game.
Though if Taylor Martinez continues playing like the world's greatest quarterback -- 354 yards and 5 touchdowns against Southern Miss -- then Nebraska could line up Lil' Red at running back and it probably wouldn't matter.
