Three Huskers No Longer on the Roster

The Nebraska football team is without a pair of tight ends and an offensive lineman as of Monday. The Huskers’ 2018 roster no longer lists tight ends Matt Snyder, David Engelhaupt or offensive lineman Bryan Brokop.

Tight ends coach Sean Beckton shared during the coaches’ Husker Nation tour that Engelhaupt had left the team. Beckton wasn’t clear on details at the time, or whether or not Engelhaupt would return. His omission from the roster looks to have answered that.

As for Snyder, injuries have plagued his career with the Huskers.

The departure of Engelhaupt and Snyder leaves Nebraska with presumed starter Jack Stoll and redshirt freshman backups Austin Allen and Kurt Rafdal. True freshman Cam Jurgens is the only other scholarship tight end, although true freshmen Katerian LeGrone and Justin McGriff could move from wide receiver if needed. Walk-ons Bo Kitrell, Branden Hohenstein and Bryson Krull complete the tight end room.

Brokop, whose departure from the team has been rumored since the spring, never appeared in a game for the Huskers.
