Teddy Prochazka, Nebraska OL, injured in fall camp
Teddy Prochazka began his Nebraska career with high expectations in 2021. Unfortunately, injuries have hampered his production, and head coach Matt Rhule revealed he’s battling another injury in fall camp.
On Saturday, Rhule announced Prochazka was banged up. The good news is Rhule currently expects Prochazka to return in time for the season opener, but it’s another setback for the offensive lineman in what could be a key season.
Matt Rhule says Teddy Prochazka got “banged up” again and is out currently. He described it as nothing long term and should be ready by the first game.

Prochazka originally joined the program in 2021 as a key in-state prospect out of Omaha. He was the 18th OT in the country and Nebraska’s No. 2 overall prospect per the 247 Sports Composite.
As a true freshman, Prochazka appeared in 5 games and had 2 starts before a season-ending injury. In the process, he became just the 16th true freshman offensive lineman to play for Nebraska and just the second true freshman in the modern era of Nebraska football to start at left tackle.
Prochazka began the 2022 season as the team’s starting left tackle. Unfortunately, he suffered another season-ending injury against Georgia Southern.
As of now, his latest setback sounds minor. Hopefully it is just a temporary delay and he is able to bounce back in time to begin the season.
