Thompson Practices, Purdy Out, Hausmann Praised

Nebraska’s interim football coach Mickey Joseph told reporters that quarterback Casey Thompson practiced yesterday. 

Joseph said Thompson “made some throws”  but is still day-to-day with an arm injury.  He also said backup quarterback Chubba Purdy is out with a high ankle sprain and will need surgery. 

Joseph praised freshman linebacker Ernest Hausmann, saying the Columbus High graduate is “playing at a high level and getting better every week.”
