Travis has been expected to play on Saturday, but he’ll miss his sixth straight game.

Boddy-Calhoun has missed the last two games, and he may be able to play against Nebraska.

James will not play on Saturday, but head coach Jerry Kill said he could return in three weeks.

Gentry dealt with a hamstring issue earlier this season, missing three games, and the redshirt freshman is apparently injured again.

Kill suggested that Jones is dealing with “one thing after another”, including migraines.

Campion and Bobek missed last week’s game with undisclosed injuries, and both guys are expected to be out against Nebraska.

Smith was limited by an undisclosed injury last week against Purdue, but Kill suggested the redshirt freshman running back feels better now.


LB Michael Rose-Ivey (Groin)-Out
OT Nick Gates (Ankle)-Questionable
LB Josh Banderas (Groin)-Probable
LB Chris Weber (Neck)-Questionable
DT Kevin Williams (Undisclosed)-Questionable
DT Kevin Maurice (Foot)-Out
DE Freedom Akinmoladun (Knee)-Out
CB Daniel Davie (Groin)-Probable
S Keiron Williams (Undisclosed)-Questionable
TE David Sutton (Ankle)-Out


Gates, Nebraska’s starting right tackle, left last week’s game with a high ankle sprain. If he can’t go, Zach Sterup would get the start on Saturday.

Nebraska looks thin along the defensive line, with Williams, Maurice and Akinmoladun all banged up.
