LINCOLN, Neb. - Apparently Nebraska's bye week came at the perfect time.
Senior receiver Kenny Bell (groin), cornerback Daniel Davie (leg), sophomore receiver Brandon Reilly (hamstring), and redshirt freshman defensive end Marcus Newby (hamstring) all practiced yesterday and will likely return this week.
Meanwhile starting BUCK linebacker David Santos could return after missing the last two games with a knee injury.
"It seemed like the bye week lasted two months," said Pelini. "I thought the bye came at a good time for us to get some guys back healthy."
Since the start of fall camp, Nebraska has lose multiple presumed starters for the year due to injury including: linebacker Michael Rose, defensive back Charles Jackson, and wide receiver Sam Burtch. In addition senior wide receiver Jamal Turner was lost of the season with an Achilles injury and reserve running back Adam Taylor broke his leg.
