The Nebraska football team has had to deal with a string of injuries over the course of the season to the point where the offensive line has looked an awful lot like The Walking Dead. As the Cornhuskers head down the stretch run, vital players are starting to get healthy for the first time since August or September and that could be a good thing for their chances to go 10-2.

The Quarterbacks

The Nebraska football team and fans were most worried about quarterback Tommy Armstrong. After suffering a concussion last weekend against the Ohio State Buckeyes, it has long been thought Ryker Fyfe would be getting the start.

The good news for Nebraska football faithful is he has been recovering nicely and has been moving right along down the concussion protocol. Mike Riley has said he appears to be improving and could get the start on Saturday. That said, he hasn't been cleared to play yet and it's coming down to the final hours.

You have to think that if Tommy isn't able to compete in contact drills today, the Nebraska football team will see Ryker Fyfe under center on Saturday.

The Offensive Line

Jerald Foster hasn't been able to suit up for the Nebraska football team since August but it appears he's well on his way to being fully recovered. Riley shed a bit of light on Foster, saying it appears he could play again this year.

Nebraska's offensive line has been banged up all year but key members are going to be playing football before the regular season ends.

Nick Gates and Tanner Farmer have both been said to be 100 percent healthy, according to 247 Sports. If the offensive can indeed find a way to stay on the field together, a running game that has been quite ineffectual the last couple of weeks could return to being one of the best in the Big Ten conference.

The Wide Receivers

One of the reasons the Nebraska football team has struggled on offense is because several of Tommy Armstrong's top targets have been sidelined with injuries. Jordan Westerkamp, Cethan Carter and Alonzo Moore have all missed time this year. All three are said to be healthy and ready to play against the Minnesota Golden Gophers
