Lincoln - The Huskers moved inside the Cook Pavilion Indoor workout facility to avoid wet turf and cold conditions outdoors for Monday?s football practice. Head Coach Frank Solich said it was a very good practice, particularly considering it was the first practice to follow Saturday?s full scrimmage.
"I was pleased with the effort today," said Solich. "It?s not automatic that you will have a great practice after a scrimmage, but for a Monday practice, I felt it was good."
Solich noted that the list of Huskers with typical bumps and bruises has increased as Nebraska is now in its third week of spring camp. "We continue to add to the injury factor," said Solich, "but hopefully, no one will be kept out for any extended period of time."
Solich said after spending considerable time looking at the scrimmage film, that it went well for a first scrimmage. "I thought the scrimmage went fairly well. We didn?t have a lot of broken plays and didn?t put the ball on the ground much, so in that regard, it was pretty good."
On the play of the offensive line, Solich said he was pleased. "We are looking for players to step it up and I saw several who did that on the offensive line, including Dan Vili Waldrop, Josh Sewell and Junior Tagoa?i," Solich said. "We are trying to get the best five players on the field. Center is a key spot, and I thought Josh Sewell did very well, which could allow Richie Incognito to fill any of the five spots on the line."
The Huskers will take Tuesday off, before returning to practice on Wednesday. The Huskers will also practice on Friday, then will scrimmage on Saturday, when approximately 800-900 coaches will be in town for the annual coaches clinic.
