The QB position will still be something to watch when Nebraska resumes practices

Nebraska will resume practices later this week with the quarterback situation still murky.

It appears the Nebraska quarterback situation will stay murky heading into bowl season.

After learning his team would play Tennessee in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30, Nebraska head coach Mike Riley said senior quarterback Tommy Armstrong is still being bothered by a hamstring injury.

"It'll be slow for him to resume full-time, full-speed,” said Riley on a conference call with reporters, including the Lincoln Journal Star. “I think in order to let that thing heal, he's not going to go full-speed into the early parts of the bowl preparation."

Backup senior quarterback Ryker Fyfe also appears on the injury report. He continues to heal from a surgery during Iowa week on his non-throwing wrist. The Grand Island native was available for the Huskers matchup with the Hawkeyes and should be fine to play in the bowl if Armstrong's hamstring doesn't improve. 

Nebraska opens up bowl practice on Friday.
