T-Magic Suits Up for Tuesday Practice

Nebraska offensive coordinator Shawn Watson said Tuesday night he's “really encouraged” by the progress of NU quarterback Taylor Martinez, who's attempting to recover from a ankle sprain suffered in Saturday's Missouri game.

“Every day is a positive sign,” Watson said. “He's done a great job of working with our training staff. He's ready to go.”

Martinez practiced in full pads, throwing and running without any considerable limp, if not participating in every part of the workout. Wide receiver Niles Paul said coaches held out Martinez from certain contact drills.

Watson said the ankle looked fit enough to hold up for Saturday's Iowa State game.

“He's not swelling up,” Watson said. “There's no discoloration. If you look at it, it looks like yours. Little bit more muscle there.”

Not one ankle sprains is like another. Some take weeks to heal. Rarely do players recover enough to practice just four days after the injury occurred.

“I'm really shocked,” Watson said. “Well, he doesn't shock me at anything anymore. He bounces back. He's like Superman.”
