LINCOLN — Nebraska’s defensive line already lacked experience before sophomore tackle Kevin Williams suffered a torn ACL in practice last week. But coach Bo Pelini, who announced Williams’ injury Saturday evening, said NU can absorb the loss with its depth at the position.
“I feel bad for Kevin, but obviously, that’s a position where we have depth right now,” Pelini said. “Just wish him the best because this is the second time he’s had a knee injury. I just feel for the kid. He’s obviously heartbroken. And he was playing good football.”
