Monday Update

The Nebraska secondary got more bad news on Monday as Courtney Grixby has apparently broken dislocated sprained his thumb (no surgery) and is now practicing in a cast. Hopefully the injury won’t be a problem come opening day.

Cornerback was a position we were already thin at before Zack Bowman went down. Here is a list of who is currently on the roster at CB.

Zack Bowman – ACL tear, out for season
Courtney Grixby – Broken thumb, playing with cast
Andre Jones – JUCO transfer, 10 practices under his belt
Titus Brothers – Former safety, good special teams guy.
Tyrell Spain – Switched from receiver, 3 practices at CB
Isaiah Fluellen – Switched from receiver, injured most of his career, currently playing with cast on his hand.
Anthony West – True freshman, 10 practices under his belt, ran 4.38 forty at NU camp.
Corey Young – True freshman, HS running back, switched from safety, 3 practices at CB
Ricky Thenarse – True freshman, just arrived in Lincoln 8/11
Ryan Ford – Freshman walk-on, 5’11”, 170 lbs.
Tim Grier – On track scholarship, apparently working out at CB

*Update - Thenarse is evidently going to play safety.

On the bright side, Louisiana Tech will be breaking in a new starter at quarterback. Junior Zac Champion is expected to win the starting job. He's the most experienced signal-caller on the LA Tech roster, but he's thrown just eight passes in his collegiate career.
