  Nebraska linebacker Collin Miller has announced his retirement from football after a spinal injury ended his season last month. Miller said Tuesday a neurologist who works with the Cornhuskers recommended he give up the game as a precaution. The senior from Fishers, Indiana, appeared in 40 games, starting his final 16. He made 27 tackles in four games this season. Miller suffered a spinal concussion, which is characterized by a temporary sensory impairment and motor weakness, in the Nov. 21 game against Illinois. The condition typically resolves in one to three days with no lasting effects, according to the Neural Regeneration Research journal. - AP College Football

  12/11/20 - Cam Taylor-BrittJr/2022, Nebraska, 6-0, 215 (DS#14 CB) + More +

  Last week, Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander said he thought teams had been mostly staying away from throwing the ball toward junior cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt. On Saturday against Purdue, Taylor-Britt added another play to his highlight reel, rising high in one-on-one coverage against star sophomore receiver David Bell down the sideline to knock a pass away. It looked a lot like a similar play he made against the similarly talented Jahan Dotson of Penn State earlier this fall. Taylor-Britt, a Montgomery, Alabama, native, also was involved in Purdue's biggest play of the game when he and senior Marquel Dismuke collided while trying to play a deep attempt for Bell that turned into an 89-yard touchdown. And sure, he dropped an interception in the fourth quarter, too. But coaches and teammates alike say Taylor-Britt is playing at a high level on the edge for the Huskers.

"Cam is playing at an elite level," senior cornerback Dicaprio Bootle said Monday. "He's a heavy competitor. Somebody who, no matter what it is, we could be flipping a coin and he's going to want to get in on that coin flip and be able to call whether it's heads or tails. That's just a testament to the guy that he is. "He's took this year and took the time off to really help himself grow as a player. I always thought the highest of Cam and thought he was a great player, regardless of if he might have had some miscues in prior years. Who doesn't? But that guy right there, as somebody that's younger than me, I really admire his work and I really admire the things that he does on the field and just the player that he's evolved into over his time here. "Down the line, if he continues to do what he's doing, it'll pay off for him big time." - Lincoln Journal Star

  12/10/20 - Turner CorcoranFr/2024, Nebraska, 6-5, 285 (DS#9 OT) + More +

  Freshman left tackle Turner Corcoran hasn't played much this season, but that in and of itself is a good thing. He's behind steady veteran Brenden Jaimes, who on Saturday set a Nebraska offensive line record by starting his 39th consecutive game. Corcoran, the former four-star prospect from Lawrence, Kansas, is taking what amounts to an apprentice year. He's played in a pair of games, studied Jaimes' game, and will be in position to compete to take over as NU's blind-side protector in 2021 if Jaimes heads off to the NFL.

"Personally, I think he's more mature than I was when I was in his shoes," Jaimes said of Corcoran this week. "I think he'll be a great asset to the team next year, as he is this year. Whatever role he fills, I think he'll be able to do it to the best of his ability." Offensive line coach Greg Austin and head coach Scott Frost have both complimented Corcoran's work since he arrived on campus back in January. "Coach Austin likes him, Coach Frost likes him, along with all the other young guys," Jaimes said. "I think they're doing a great job competing every day in practice. But for him, I think if he has to take that left tackle next year, I'm going to do my best to kind of give him all the advice that the older guys gave me and just pass down a legacy of being a left tackle at Nebraska." - Lincoln Journal Star

  12/10/20 - Brenden JaimesSr/2021, Nebraska, 6-5, 300 (DS#24 OT) + More +

  Jaimes is playing at a very high level, according to Dominic Raiola, an All-American at Nebraska in 2000 who was a starting center for the Detroit Lions from 2002-14. Retired and living in Fort Worth, Texas, Raiola started 203 games in the NFL. Consequently, he understands precisely what it takes to play in the trenches against the world's best linemen. Raiola watches Nebraska games closely and obviously pays close attention to the offensive line. He says Jaimes is "definitely" capable of playing in the NFL, in part because he likely could play either tackle or guard.

"You watch his tenacity, you see how big he is - and he's going to get stronger before the combine and the draft," Raiola said Monday during "Early Break" on 93.7 FM. "But the guy just dominates people. If you turn on the film, he shows up. I watch it close, and I watch him close. I definitely think he has what it takes to get in (the NFL). But it's all about opportunity and seizing your opportunity when you get in there. But I certainly think he's got a shot." - Lincoln Journal Star

  12/10/20 - Adrian MartinezJr/2022, Nebraska, 6-1, 225 (DS#44 QB) + More +

  Saturday's game moved Martinez into fourth place on Nebraska's career passing yardage list - he's now at 5,262 - as he passed Dave Humm and Joe Ganz. His work on the ground put him over 1,500 career rushing yards, and moved him within 10 yards of his coach, Frost, for seventh on NU's quarterback rushing list. For the second week in a row, Martinez was efficient, too. Combined with an 18-for-20 effort against Iowa, Martinez is 41-for-50 for 416 yards through the air over the past two weeks. "I would say Luke (McCaffrey) and I have been pushing each other at practice, Coach (Matt) Lubick, Coach Verdu (Mario Verduzco), we've just all been really honed in on the details," Martinez said. "And our receivers have really started to come into their own - that's Levi (Falck), Oliver (Martin), our tight ends - they're all helping us out a tremendous amount. So I feel really good about those guys and I know Luke does, as well. "We've just been chopping at it."

It's been a lot of chopping for Martinez throughout the season. It appears, though, all that work is beginning to show results. "I think it's a little bit of everybody. Part of that goes on us with receivers and running backs and tight ends moving in practice the way we should be to make sure that Adrian's confident whenever we get out to the games," NU receiver Wan'Dale Robinson said. "This week was probably our best week of practice with that, and obviously it showed out there on the field." - Lincoln journal Star
