Husker Doc Talk

2015 Episode 4: The Jones Fracture

August 20, 2015

When a Husker player is injured we count on two different places for honest information. The first is Mike Riley, okay he might not be totally honest, but he speaks with authority. The 2nd is Dr. Rob Zatechka. Hey, what would a doctor be if he can't give his opinion about injuries? 

Tonight we discuss the Jones fracture of Husker star wide receiver De'Mornay Pierson-El's injury. Originally it was stated that Pierson-El would be out 6-8 weeks, but in this Omaha World-Herald story, Head Coach Mike Riley indicates it could be a little longer.

First of all, what is a Jones fracture? Dr. Rob explains only like a doctor can. Also, what does this mean for the Nebraska special teams unit as Jordan Westercamp is now the #1 punt returner? 

If you listen long enough, you will find out what Dr. Rob has over both Pierson-El and Westercamp.
