Lincoln, NE - The first week of practice couldn't end quick enough for the Huskers. For the third time in as many days the Blackshirts lost a member for the season.
Bo Pelini announced that Michael Rose will miss the season with a knee injury. It was a non-contact injury, and he will have surgery to correct the damage this week. The news comes on the heels of LeRoy Alexander's suspension and Charles Jackson's season-ending knee injury.
All three guys were projected to be key contributors to the Huskers defense this season. It would be easy for the Huskers to feel a little down, but Pelini thinks his team is just fine. He said, "Our team morale is fine. You guys will make more of it. I feel for those kids. But, as far as us going forward we've got a lot of good players. We've got a lot of good competition. We'll be just fine"
The Huskers will take Sunday off before returning to practice on Monday morning.
