There will be a collective sigh of relief around Husker Nation after Bo Pelini delivers his news that Ameer Abdullah will be ready to go against Wisconsin.
Pelini said the Heisman hopeful is “doing great” and that the MCL sprain is not as bad as first feared. Abdullah left NU’s 35-14 win over Purdue in the first quarter after just six carries for 1 yard. Pelini is confident about Ameer’s availability against Wisconsin on Nov. 15.
“I would anticipate he’ll be back at 100 percent (for Wisconsin),” the coach said. “That is my anticipation right now. That’s my guess of where things stand right now. That could always change.”
