Toe injury leaves Taylor Martinez's status in doubt Saturday
Redshirt freshman quarterback Tommy Armstrong is a “great leader on the field,” NU coach Bo Pelini said. “He has a great command and presence about him and can do a lot of different things. He's a big, strong guy who can run, but he's a very, very capable thrower. I like what he brings to the table.”

LINCOLN — Nebraska starting quarterback Taylor Martinez hasn't missed a meaningful snap of Husker football since late in the 2010 season. But the fifth-year senior and captain could miss NU's game against South Dakota State because of a turf toe injury.
Martinez wore a gray hoodie and a walking boot on his left foot as he left practice. Coach Bo Pelini said he held Martinez out Monday and Tuesday from workouts, and will evaluate Wednesday and Thursday whether Martinez is fit enough to play Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder has started 32 straight games since missing the Nov. 26, 2010, game against Colorado.
