Marcus Satterfield and the Nebraska offense could be without starting quarterback Jeff Sims this week. After an ankle injury against Colorado, Sims has yet to practice this week, but Satterfield addressed that status Wednesday.

During his press conference, Satterfield said that Sims was held out of Tuesday’s practice. However, the current plan is for Sims to give things a go Wednesday evening.

“We held him out on (Tuesday’s) practice. He got mental reps and followed around in the huddle and everything. Expect him to be out there tonight and go as full speed as he possibly can,” said Satterfield.

As for Heinrich Haarberg, Satterfield said it wasn’t great that Sims was banged up in Week 2, but it was good that Haarberg received meaningful reps at Colorado. Satterfield also said Haarberg has been improving his craft since the spring.

“He’s very much a football guy. I don’t know if he comes across that way all the time, but a very smart kid, works at it. Diligent in his work,” Satterfield explained. “He’s grinded since the spring just improving his craft at the position. It’s bad that Jeff got a little banged up, but it’s good he got to get out there and get some reps. I think that will help him.”

Haarberg finished the loss to Colorado going 2-for-6 with 13 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 17 yards on 2 carries.

If Sims is unable to go in Week 3, the starting decision would likely come down to Haarberg and Chubba Purdy. However, it is certainly notable that Haarberg was the first QB off the bench in Week 2.
