Junior Charles Jackson will miss the entire season after suffering a leg injury in practice this week. Coach Bo Pelini announced the news after Thursday's workout.

Pelini described it as an "unusual injury," one similar to the ligament strain that bugged Rex Burkhead throughout his senior year in 2012. Pelini said Nebraska's medical staff reported that for Jackson "long-term, the best thing was to go ahead and fix it now."
