Nebraska Head Coach Bill Callahan said they have been monitoring Adams' progress closely. "We are relieved that Jordan's medical condition has improved to the point that he will be able to make a full recovery. Jordan has really had to battle through this and has shown great determination and strength throughout this time. I wanted to make Husker fans aware of Jordan's condition and I know he and his family appreciate everyone's support."
Coach Callahan Updates status of QB Jordan Adams
According to Dr. Lonnie Albers, University of Nebraska Director of Athletic Medicine, Jordan Adams is receiving medical care for a rare complication of infectious mononucleosis. Adams was diagnosed with mononucleosis in December and experienced a potentially life-threatening spontaneous rupture of the spleen. This complication occurs in about one in 1,000 cases of confirmed mononucleosis. Through the care of his physicians, and a great deal of patience on Adams' part, the spleen was preserved, and he is recovering his strength. His recovery is nearly complete, and it is anticipated that he will be released to participate in all activity, including football, in August.
