Husker quarterback Adrian Martinez practiced in full pads on Wednesday & was able to participate in all drills for Nebraska.

But offensive coordinator Troy Walters still wouldn't say if the true freshman would play for certain this Saturday at Michigan. 

"We want to make sure he's healthy," said Walters. "We want to make sure he's close to 100 percent. We're going against a good defense. They fly around. They're physical. So, we're not going to put him in any harm or any danger. He's got to be able to make all the throws and all the runs and things of that nature. So we'll just take our time and make sure that he's healthy and he gives us he best chance to win."

Kickoff Saturday in Ann Arbor is set for 11 a.m. on FS1.
