Nebraska WR Jordan Westerkmap to miss last career game

Nebraska wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp will miss the Huskers' bowl game according to head coach Mike Riley.

Nebraska senior wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp will miss the Huskers' bowl game against Tennessee and the Senior Bowl with a knee injury. The news was announced by head coach Mike Riley on Thursday. 

According to Riley, Westerkamp torn his meniscus on a non-contact play in practice. 

The senior didn't have the season he would have hoped for. Westerkamp missed two games in the middle of the year and finishes 2016 with 526 yards and 38 receptions - a drop in production compared to his 2014 and 2015 campaigns.

Westerkamp will leave Nebraska high on the receiving charts. He is second in school history in career receptions and needed just six yards to move into second all-time in career receiving yards. He finishes his career with a 36 consecutive game catch streak - one shy of the record. 

Nebraska senior receiver Brandon Reilly is expected to be moved to the slot. The news is a big blow to the Nebraska passing game, with senior quarterback Tommy Armstrong's status already in doubt.
