Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong is confident he will play Friday when the Huskers close out the regular season at Iowa. Armstrong has returned to practice after missing last week’s 28-7 win over Maryland with an injured hamstring.
“I’m good to go and have been practicing as much as I can”, said Armstrong. “I feel like if we had a game today I would play. I’m ready and it has been a long wait for me.”
Armstrong is one of three quarterbacks sharing time in practice. Ryker Fyfe led the Huskers to a win over Maryland but underwent surgery to repair a broken bone in his left wrist and Zack Darlington moved from receiver to quarterback two weeks ago.
“With the short week and our injury situation we are having to prepare for some different things to happen”, said Nebraska offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf. “We have got it covered but we have had to take our time and make sure all of our bases are covered.”
