Scott Frost provides update on 3 key Huskers for Iowa showdown
Nebraska coach Scott Frost offered up some injury updates as the team prepares for the final game of the season vs. No. 16 Iowa.
Frost announced that it’s unlikely for freshman running back Rahmir Johnson and senior safety Deontai Williams to suit up but had more optimism about the status of junior defensive lineman Damion Daniels.
Frost said it would be “tight” for either Rahmir Johnson or Deontai Williams to be ready to play against Iowa, but sounded maybe a little more optimistic about Damion Daniels.
