Nebraska includes pair of key defenders on Week 5 status report
Nebraska is hosting the No. 2 team in the country this week and looking for a major upset against Michigan. However, the Cornhuskers will be missing some key defenders for the matchup.
Nebraska revealed its league-mandated availability report prior to kickoff, and a couple of key defenders are included. Linebacker Luke Reimer and defensive lineman Cam Lenhardt were both officially ruled out for the matchup.
Reimer is the team’s leader in sacks with 2.5 and 2.5 TFL so far this season. Lenhardt also has a pair of sacks and 2 TFLs early in the season, leaving Nebraska with some holes on defense.
As for the offense, neither Jeff Sims nor Heinrich Haarberg were included in the availability report. That does not necessarily mean both are good to go with Sims not listed on the report but not 100% last week. Head coach Matt Rhule said during the week that both players have been active in practices.
As for Michigan, defensive back Rod Moore is listed as questionable after making his season debut a week ago. Offensive lineman Myles Hinton is also listed as questionable.
