Nebraska DB 'probably' out for season with shoulder injury, Scott Frost says
The 2020 season is likely over before it even started for one Nebraska defensive back.
Speaking with the media on Friday, Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said that sophomore cornerback Braxton Clark sustained a shoulder injury that will probably keep him out the entire season. He suffered the injury during a pre-practice drill, per Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald.
Clark’s injury is a blow to Nebraska’s depth in the secondary. Though he was a freshman last season, Clark made significant contributions for the Huskers, appearing in every game and making one start.
Clark ended the season with 11 tackles, with nine solo stops. He also had a tackle for loss and an interception in his redshirt freshman campaign. In 2018, he played in three contests with one tackle.
Nebraska finished the 2019 season with a 5-7 record. The Huskers begin the season on the road against No. 6 Ohio State.
