Mike Riley updates injury report, talks Northern Illinois etc.”

Nebraska coach Mike Riley says one look at the film of Saturday's loss at OR should get his Huskers ready for this week's game at home against Northern Illinois.

The game against Northern Illinois is set for 11:00 a.m. and will be televised by BTN, The following week's game also at Memorial Stadium will be at 2:30 as Big Ten play begins against Rutgers. Bryant aggravated his right knee against OR on Saturday, and Riley said Monday it would be mid-week until he knows whether the sophomore can play against the Huskies.

" Although Bryant has been doing the majority of the work, Riley said NU still feels good about Wilbon and Ozigbo".

But Riley also said the reality of it kicked in on the flight home from Eugene.

"We have from the beginning of camp managed Tre in a way that we don't overwork him", added Riley.

The Huskers fell behind OR 42-14 at the half in Eugene last Saturday only to close the gap to 42-35 in the fourth quarter.

"Jaylin Bradley will move onto special teams and play this week and (he'll) train as one of the running backs this week", Riley said.

The sophomore from St. Louis, after all, has been perhaps the Huskers' best offensive player through two games, carrying the ball 51 of the 56 times that quarterback Tanner Lee has handed it to a running back. So far, he's yet to get on the field in any capacity.

"We should be so hungry to practice today", Riley said. "We made a decision to play Tre and then we had to make a decision on who to spell him with, and we chose Wilbon". All three of the backs are improved players from a year ago. We have Devine (Ozigbo) who's played a lot and been productive, and we're going to get Jalin Bradley going.

Some good runs, good passes and sharp at times, Riley said, "but way too much inconsistency".

Davis said Bradley was on coverage teams Monday and that, "it's always a continual process to get him ready to get in on offense, and we'll continue with that process".

Bryant has been one of the early surprises for the Cornhuskers (1-1).

Riley said he knows not playing has been hard for Ozigbo.

"He has played, he's a good player, he's worked hard, he's gotten better, (but) so has everybody else", Riley said. "We made a decision". It's outside of anything he can do about it. Are you going to pout? Are you going to pout? "I don't care if we are playing the Green Bay Packers or whatever, it should be about us knowing we can be better".
