Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong day-to-day with concussion

Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong day-to-day with concussion

(AP) Nebraska coach Mike Riley says quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. is going through the concussion protocol and is listed day-to-day for this weekend’s home game against Minnesota.

Riley said Monday that he is encouraged because Armstrong has said he feels good.

Armstrong’s head hit the turf hard when he was tackled along the Ohio State sideline by safety Malik Hooker in the second quarter of Saturday night’s 62-3 loss in Columbus, Ohio.

Medics tended to Armstrong on the field for about 10 minutes before he was taken to a hospital to be evaluated. Armstrong returned to Ohio Stadium in the second half and was with his teammates on the sideline.

Riley said Ryker Fyfe would start if Armstrong can’t play. He would be backed up by Zack Darlington.


Here’s the play where Armstrong suffered the concussion.
