Martinez: Not 100 Percent, Still Bothered By Foot Injury

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez says his left foot is still bothering him. Coach Bo Pelini had said repeatedly Martinez wouldn't return until he was 100-percent healthy, but the senior acknowledged after Saturday's stunning 34-23 loss at Minnesota that he wasn't at full strength.

Martinez also said the injury had been inaccurately described as turf toe, which is a sprain of the ligaments around the big toe joint. Martinez said his injury is to his second and third toes. He declined to comment when asked if either of the toes were sprained or broken.

During his post-game news conference, Pelini didn't speak directly to why Martinez started, but said who played quarterback was not Nebraska's biggest problem against the Gophers.
