According to a report by the Omaha World Herald, Nebraska redshirt sophomore Jerald Foster will miss a month with a knee injury. Foster has been pegged as the prime candidate to start at left guard.
A month could put Foster back for the Oregon game on Sept. 17. In his place redshirt freshman Jalin Barnett and senior Corey Whitaker could be called upon. Barnett was a high school All-American out of the state of Oklahoma.
Nebraska head coach Mike Riley announced on Friday he jumped the gun and Foster will now actually miss the entire season with a torn MCL. Whitaker, a projected backup, will have a knee scope and be out for a few weeks.
