Nebraska head football coach Mike Riley updates the injury status of several Huskers before NU's showdown with 9th ranked Ohio State on Saturday. 

Riley said sophomore IB Tre Bryant will not play but Mikale Wilbon will. Cornerback Chris Jones is good to go as well. 

Safety Antonio Reed, meanwhile, will not play because of a knee injury. Fellow safety Aaron Williams is also questionable and will be reevaluated on Friday. 

Brenden Jaimes will make the start at right tackle. Wide receiver Bryan Reimers sprained his ankle and is doubtful. 

When it comes to Bryant, Riley said the sophomore dressed out and started going through Thursday's practice but couldn't finish it. 

"I feel bad," Riley said. "He actually put the gear on today and practiced a little bit and then wasn't able to continue. But that's ok. We told him at that point that he got started and that was a good thing and now he can have what was left of this week and next week. We won't play for quite a few days so maybe he'll have a chance as we come back either in the bye week or through it."
