Huskers Lose Backup Quarterback for Season

Kody Spano, a redshirt freshman quarterback for Nebraska, had to be helped off the field on Wednesday after tearing his ACL. Spano has had knee problems throughout this past year and it appears that his left knee finally gave way after opting to not have surgery on it this past spring.

Junior Zac Lee will be the starting quarterback this year, however behind him Nebraska doesn't have a whole lot of proven depth.

Latravis Washington is expected to be the primary backup now but at this time last year, Washington was practicing with the linebackers hoping to earn a spot in the two-deep there.

The Huskers do have three talented in-coming freshman quarterbacks that could make a splash but none are truly ready to jump on the field yet and be expected to manage a game.

Head Coach Bo Pelini issued this statement after yesterday's practice.

"We have Cody Green and Latravis (Washington) and Taylor Martinez," Pelini said. "We've brought Ron Kellogg Jr. back in too. We'll be ok, those guys are all coming along. We wish Kody was with us, but he's not. It's part of the deal. I'm not worried about us, I'm worried about him. He's worked his tail off to get back. I feel bad for him."
