Fast-rising freshman left tackle Teddy Prochazka will miss the rest of Nebraska's season according to the Omaha World Herald after injuring his knee Saturday.
Coach Scott Frost said Prochazka will undergo surgery, and NU expects he'll be back in the spring. Prochazka, an Elkhorn South graduate, assumed starting duties in NU’s win over Northwestern and had his second straight start against Michigan. Because he played in five games, including as a jumbo tight end against Oklahoma, he has already burned his redshirt for this season. Prochazka can redshirt another year or potentially petition the NCAA to get back this year of eligibility. He is the second true freshman starter to go down in 2021 with a season-ending injury. Running back Gabe Ervin hurt his knee in the Oklahoma game but maintained his redshirt.
