Adrian Martinez is Nebraska’s prized possession at quarterback. Over the offseason, Huskers coach Scott Frost said he wouldn’t trade anybody in the country for Martinez.

It may seem silly now, but, he was poised to be a Heisman Trophy candidate this year. Nebraska, at 4-4 overall now, has no shot at having a Heisman winner. Fair or not, the team’s success plays a part in that.

Regardless, Martinez has been out with an injury since Oct. 5 against Northwestern. He got hurt in that game and Nebraska survived, winning 13-10.

Since then, Nebraska has gone 0-2. Coincidence? We’ll never truly know.

On Tuesday, ahead of Nebraska’s game against Purdue this coming weekend, Martinez updated the media on how he’s feeling:

This is excellent news if you’re a Husker fan. Again, Martinez is talented. And Nebraska is a better team with him.

Finally, we should be able to see the Huskers have their signal caller back in a game against a Boilermakers team that has a lot of talent offensively as well.

We may be in store for a shootout on Saturday, folks.
