Nebraska is getting a jolt for this weekend with some good news on the injury front as wide receiver Omar Manning and linebacker Luke Reimer will be expected to be available for the game at Northwestern.

Manning and Reimer will both be available this weekend as the 0-1 Cornhuskers hope to get their season on-track against Northwestern. The Wildcats are 2-0 are impressive wins against Maryland and Iowa to start the year.

It is the health of Manning that has intrigued the Nebraska faithful. Originally a commit to TCU as part of their 2017 class, the former four-star recruitcould be set to make his debut for Nebraska. He comes with outstanding production at the junior college level where he had 35 catches for 727 yards and six touchdowns at Kilgore College.

Manning missed the season opener for undisclosed health reasons.

In their season opener two weeks ago, a 52-17 loss at Ohio State, the Cornhuskers managed just 160 yards of passing offense. Manning, a wide receiver built like a tight end, can possibly help Nebraska move the chains and sustain drives, something they struggled with against Ohio State.

Manning has yet to play for Nebraska after committing to the program last year out of junior college.

A season ago, Reimer had 11 tackles in limited snaps. He is back from his ankle injury and should be ready to play at Northwestern.
