Frost Likes Versatility of Backs, Receivers

The Nebraska football team started its second week of fall practice yesterday.  Looking ahead to the upcoming season, coach Scott Frost likes the versatility of his running backs and receivers.    

Frost noted that having players who can double as running backs and receivers will help the coaches scheme and be good insurance in the event of injuries. “If we get short in the backfield, there’s a couple receivers like Miles (Jones) and Wan’Dale (Robinson) that can take carries,” Frost said.  “If we get a couple receivers hurt, Mo Washington and some guys can go out and they know the routes.” 

The Huskers open their season with a home contest against South Alabama on Saturday, August 31st.
