Nebraska coach Bo Pelini told reporters Martinez will not play this week when the Cornhuskers visit Michigan Stadium.
Taylor Martinez has been battered and bruised this year. After being riddled with turf toe and sidelined for two games, the senior quarterback is now battling a hip pointer and a shoulder injury. He suffered the hip pointer on Oct. 26th and did not play on Nov. 2nd against Northwestern. He is questionable for Saturday's game against Michigan. Freshman Tommy Armstrong will make his second straight start. Last week he was 15 of 29 for 173 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. He rushed 17 times for 69 yards and a score. Backup Ron Kellogg III will also see time.
Pelini says Taylor Martinez could be back in the mix this week at QB, depending on his health. Has appeared in just one game since September— ESPN Big Ten (@ESPN_BigTen) November 5, 2013
