Nebraska defensive end Avery Moss returned to his home in Arizona to attend to a personal issue and won't play in the Gator Bowl against No. 23 Georgia next week.
Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini also announced Friday that linebacker Jared Afalava and receivers Richard Wynne and Ishmail Jackson violated team rules and won't be on hand for Wednesday's game in Jacksonville, Fla.
Moss has played in every game, starting three, and was second on the team with 4.5 sacks and six quarterback hurries.
Afalava played in four games but has not been on the game field since October. Wynne and Jackson have caught no passes.
