Scott Frost issues injury update on freshmen Noa Pola-Gates, Wan'Dale Robinson
Scott Frost had some injury updates to provide while meeting with the media on Thursday, as Nebraska prepares to take on No. 14 Wisconsin on Saturday.
Frost announced that freshman safety Noa Pola-Gates will miss the remainder of the 2019 season after surgery. Pola-Gates has appeared in two games for the Huskers this season, playing against Northern Illinois and Ohio State. He’s made one tackle.
Because Pola-Gates did not appear in more than four games, he can maintain his status as a redshirt freshman.
Frost also had an update in dinged up wide receiver and running back Wan’Dale Robinson, who has been one of the most productive offensive players for Nebraska. It’s “wait-and-see” mode for the freshman, while also saying there’s a “good chance” he’ll play.
Sam McKewon of Omaha World-Herald tweeted out the update.

Robinson has played in all nine games this season for the Huskers and he’s currently the team’s third leading rusher with 326 yards and three touchdowns on 85 carries, as well as Nebraska’s second-most productive receiver with 453 yards and two scores on 40 receptions.
The freshman also has 236 yards on 11 kickoff returns.
Nebraska is looking to get back to .500 this weekend, currently sitting at 4-5 on the season.
