Nebraska S Myles Farmer carted off field with pre-game injury
We are still waiting for kickoff in the game between Purdue and Nebraska, but one Cornhusker has already suffered what appears to be a serious injury.
According to Sam McKewon with the Omaha World-Herald, safety Myles Farmer went down during pre-game warmups. While the extent of the injury will not be known for a bit, McKewon indicated Farmer was carted off as a result of the injury.
In addition to being carted off, an aircast could be seen on Farmer’s right leg:
There is an aircast on Farmer's right leg.
Purdue's field has been unkind to NU before.

Farmer has been a solid contributor for the Huskers in 2020. He appeared in four games as a true freshman in 2019 in order to preserve his redshirt before earning his first career start in 2020.
Entering Saturday, Farmer led Nebraska with two interceptions and finished with a career-best three tackles against Northwestern. That game against the Wildcats was his first start.
Hopefully Farmer’s injury is not as serious as initial appearances.
