LINCOLN — It's no small scar on Nebraska guard Jake Cotton's left knee. A half-foot long. Could be an inch wide. The remains of an October 2011 surgery to repair ACL and MCL tears. An injury that can be the widow-maker for some college careers.
Not for Cotton. Eighteen months and countless rehab sessions later, the junior is working with the No. 1 offense at left guard and describing his favorite play, where he's a lead pulling guard on a power play around left end.
