On Wednesday, Nebraska released a copy of the footage sent to both the Pac-12 and Big Ten league offices regarding the play quarterback Adrian Martinez was injured on during Saturday's game against Colorado.
The play occurred in the fourth quarter Saturday when Colorado linebacker Jacob Callier (No. 44) tackled Martinez around his legs. Martinez suffered an injury to his right knee that required an MRI but revealed no ligament damage.
Frost was careful not to say there was malicious intent on the play, but Nebraska felt strongly enough that it should at least be reviewed that the Huskers sent the clip to Big Ten and Pac-12 officials for review.
“You never want to think anyone on a football field would intentionally try to hurt anyone else. Nobody except someone that does that knows what the intentions were,” Frost said then. “I will tell you that we have an angle that doesn’t look very good. We turned the play into the Big Ten and the Pac-12 and we’ll see where it goes from there.”
Frost said Martinez didn’t mention anything about the tackle on the field, but “I didn’t need him to, I had a good view of it from the sidelines.”
Martinez has missed all three practices this week since. He has had a sleeve covering his right knee since Saturday's game.
