Nebraska head coach Scott Frost is questioning the intentions of Colorado linebacker Jacob Callier following an injury sustained by Cornhuskers’ freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez on Saturday.
Replays showed Callier moving on the ground near Martinez’s right leg after a whistle blew.
“And nobody except someone who does that knows what the intentions were. I will tell you, we have an angle that doesn’t look very good. So we turned the play into the Big Ten and the Pac-12, and we’ll see where it goes from there.”
Martinez, who sustained no ligament damage from the injury, has not been ruled out for Saturday’s tilt against Troy.
“We got about as good of news as we could have gotten,” Frost said.
While Frost didn’t mention Callier by name, it was clear that he was focused on what transpired.
“I just know the angle I’ve seen — that I don’t think is out there — doesn’t look great at all,” Frost said. “Everybody’s going to have to make their own determination.”
Martinez didn’t accuse anyone of dirty play.
“I didn’t need him to tell me,” Frost said. I had a good view of it from the sideline.”
