LINCOLN — It appears Nebraska coach Bo Pelini will wait until Tuesday to address the injury status of his top offensive lineman, Spencer Long. Long, a fifth-year senior right guard from Elkhorn, injured his left knee on Nebraska’s fifth offensive play against Purdue on Saturday. He returned to the sidelines on crutches. Pelini said after the game the prognosis didn’t look good.
“I hope to God it isn’t as bad as it could be,” Pelini said Saturday.
