About this Article

Rex Burkhead would love to say he'll play Saturday when Nebraska meets Minnesota on senior day. He can't, though, because he just doesn't know. It's been this way for weeks. One day, the knee will feel good, and he'll think he can play that week. The next day, the knee hurts and he knows he won't. "I think it kills him every week," coach Bo Pelini said. "That's just who he is."
