The reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week's status will be in question when the Huskers play their final home game against the Maryland Terrapins. 

Tommy Armstrong has had his fair share of injury issues this season, including this past week when he was questionable heading into Nebraska's game against Minnesota due to a concussion.

Armstrong played, but suffered an ankle/hamstring injury in the process. Riley said he does not want to imagine Armstrong not playing on Senior Day, but his status is day-to-day. Ryker Fyfe is listed as Armstrong's backup. Behind Fyfe is Zack Darlington, and behind Darlington is true freshman Patrick O'Brien. 

Riley said the Huskers are hopeful to get wide receiver Brandon Reilly back this week. He also said offensive lineman Jerald Foster, who played his first game after suffering a knee injury just before the season started, will be good to go against Maryland.
