Pelini not dwelling on injured players

August 21, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska has lost possibly three players for the season to injuries and a bunch of others are ailing, but you won't hear coach Bo Pelini complaining.

"There's no magical thing to injuries. It's a tough sport. Things happen, and there's nothing you can do about it," Pelini said after Wednesday's practice. "Look across the country, we're not the only ones that have some guys hurt."

Nickel back Charles Jackson and linebacker Michael Rose are out with season-ending knee injuries and running back Adam Taylor broke his ankle and probably won't make it back this season.
