Rhule Gives Positive Injury Update on QB Jeff Sims

Nebraska football coach Matt Rhule has not announced who’ll start at quarterback tomorrow against Louisiana Tech. 

When Rhule met with reporters yesterday, the first question was how Jeff Sims, who’s coming back from an ankle injury, looked in practice. 

“Jeff’s had a good week of practice,” Rhule said.  “He moved around well, threw the ball really well.  Coming off an injury like that, I can’t say that he’s 100%, but you don’t notice there’s anything wrong with him as he plays.”   

Running back Anthony Grant will start tomorrow for the Huskers, who lost running backs Gabe Ervin and Rahmir Johnson to season-ending injuries in last Saturday’s win over Northern Illinois. 

Kickoff tomorrow is at 2:30 p.m.  The pregame starts at 10:30 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK and will be joined at 2 p.m. on 93.5 The Hawk.
