    Team gets double dose of quarterback health
By Jeff Singer
Senior Reporter
After losing several quarterbacks
to injuries during spring practices, the
Nebraska football team got some good
news as their healthy quarteiback
population doubled on Saturday.
Brook Berringer and Tony Veland,
who have been hampered during the
spring season with injuries, returned
on Saturday to join Tommie Frazier
and Matt Turman on the Comhusker
depth chart.
Berringer, who is recovering from
groin and elbow problems, and
Veland, who has been bothered with
a sprained ankle, returned by posting
dissimilar numbers in Nebraska’s fi
nal scrimmage before this Saturday’s
annual Red-White game.
Berringer completed 11 of 19
passes for 137 yards and a pair of
touchdowns, one for 38 yards to
wingback Riley Washington and the
other for nine yards to light end John
Vedral. The redshirt freshman from
Goodland, Kan., also ran for 35 yards
on six carries, including an eight-yard
scamper for a score.
Veland, on the other hand, had
trouble getting on track against the
Huskcr defense. Veland completed
one of eight passes for 14 yards and a
pair of interceptions. His rushing num
bers weren’t any better — minus 36
yards on the ground on five rushes.
Ncbraskacoach Tom Osborne was
happy just to have the pair back on the
“I was glad to see Veland do some
things. He’s still a little rusty, but he
did a few good things I thought,”
Osborne said. “Brook is pretty healthy
now, so we got a good look at him.”
Berringer said he was pleased with
his performance on Saturday.
“I feel good about today’s scrim
mage," Berringer said. “I missed a
little bit, but I’ve just got to gel more

Berringer has been bothered by a
sore elbow since last year, but he said
he was happy with the progress he has
made with it so far this spring.
“All fall, my elbow was bothering
me. It was to the point toward the
Orange Bowl where I couldn’t even
hardly throw a football,” he said.
But with rehabilitation on his el
bow during the off-season, Berringer
said, “It’s felt pretty good so far.
As for competing with Frazier for
the lop spot on the depth chart,
Berringer said he was more interested
in his own play than where he would
end up in the fall.
Berringer said just being able to
slay healthy in the spring goes a long
way when trying to figure out who
will play when the season starts in
“I know that Coach Osborne was
getting a little bit stressed out when
we were down to having only two
guys,” Berringer said. “The name of
the game is trying to stay healthy. U
will come down to who stays the
healthiest and who plays the best.”
