Well, this makes it official: The career of Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez apparently is over—according to his father. What a way to start Tuesday links. Martinez’s father, Casey Martinez, wrote in an email to the Associated Press on Monday night that said Taylor has a “debilitating injury” near the ball of his left foot that could take until February or March to heal fully.
