LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska defensive tackle Kevin Williams has been granted a sixth year of eligibility because of his injury issues.

Coach Mike Riley announced Thursday that the NCAA has approved Williams’ petition for the extra year because of knee injuries that kept him from playing in 2011 and 2013.

Williams has been limited to five games this season because of a groin problem.

With Williams a senior next season, the Cornhuskers could have all four of its top defensive tackles back in 2016.
