Nebraska football spring practice report: April 14

Nebraska football wrapped up another session of spring ball this morning inside of the Hawks Championship Center in front of more than 600 coaches for the Nebraska Spring Coaches Clinic.

 Defensive Coordinator Erik Chinander updated the media on the defense's progress after practice.

"We're just trying to clean things up today, get them to go faster," Chinander said.

Chinander touched on the struggles the defensive backs have faced with injuries and only having a few scholarship players at that position.

"We haven't had major injuries back there, but we've had some guys knicked up and some sickness. So, we've had a lot of guys getting reps with ones and twos," Chinander said. "To be honest, there's not really a depth chart jumping out at me yet. Everybody has to improve."

The Huskers' new defensive coordinator said he's excited for the opportunity to practice in front of the Nebraska faithful at next weekend's Red-White Spring Game.

"I think any time you get to run out of the tunnel and see the awesome fans we have and play in front of 91,000 people and hear the crowd, I think that's very cool. They're ready for that," Chinander said.

Sophomore running back and Bellevue West alum Jaylin Bradley spoke about the gains he's made this offseason and in spring practice. 

Linebackers coach and former Husker player Barrett Ruud speaks on the differences between walking out of the tunnel for a regular season game and a spring game. 

The Huskers will be back on the practice field Tuesday for their second-to-last practice before Saturday's spring game.
