Scott Frost announces promising news on Adrian Martinez
Nebraska freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez is listed as day-to-day after suffering a leg injury in the team’s season opener against Colorado, Scott Frost said on Monday.
That strong breeze you felt was everyone in Nebraska exhaling with a sigh of relief.
Martinez injured his leg in the fourth quarter against Colorado on Saturday, landing awkwardly after being taken to the ground. After the game, Frost said he was optimistic about the injury but didn’t provide any update until his weekly press conference.
Frost: "We got as good of news as we possibly could on Adrian." Day to day. A little sore, doing better than expected, has a chance to play.

“We got as good of news as we possibly could on Adrian,” Frost said, according to Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald. “A little sore, doing better than expected, has a chance to play.”
Martinez was sensational in his first outing for the Huskers, completing 15-of-20 passes for 187 yards with a touchdown and interception. He also racked up 117 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
After the injury, Martinez did not return to the game and sophomore Andrew Bunch took over. The Huskers lost 33-28 to start the season.
But the news on Martinez is positive, even if he doesn’t play or sees limited action next weekend against Troy. The freshman proved to be a playmaker and is just as dynamic as everyone expected.
