Some good news trickled out of Lincoln on Tuesday afternoon.

Nebraska running backs coach Ryan Held told reporters that Rahmir Johnson is out of concussion protocol and is ready to go for Saturday’s matchup against Purdue, per Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald. That’s a good sign for the Huskers’ rushing attack against the Boilermakers.

Johnson has emerged as the top ball carrier for Nebraska this season. He’s totaled 381 yards and 4 touchdowns on 83 carries for the Huskers. Johnson has also caught 13 passes for 175 yards and a score.

The Huskers are coming out of a bye week after suffering another one-possession loss, this time at the hands at Minnesota. At 3-5 on the year, Nebraska needs wins in 3 of its final 4 games to reach bowl eligibility.

Starting this weekend against Purdue, Nebraska will then face Ohio State, Wisconsin and Iowa to close out the 2021 campaign. The Huskers have yet to reach the postseason under Scott Frost.

Kickoff between Purdue and Nebraska is set for 3:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on ESPN 2.
