Although Husker fans had hoped the school’s all-time passing and total offense leader would heal in time for bowl season, it wasn’t to be.
After Nebraska’s first practice in Florida on Friday for their New Year’s Day Gator Bowl meeting with Georgia, Pelini said Martinez will not be healthy enough to play .
Martinez got in only 4 games this year, none since the Huskers’ 34-23 loss to Minnesota on Oct. 26. He finishes the season with 667 yards passing, 10 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
