LINCOLN, NEB. (AP) - Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says quarterback Taylor Martinez is still with the team.

Martinez practiced with the Cornhuskers on Friday after missing Thursday’s workout. Pelini said Martinez’s absence was excused and that the coaching staff knew exactly where he was.

Pelini said speculation that Martinez had left the program is “bad information.”

Martinez is in a three-man competition with Zac Lee and Cody Green for the starter’s job. The redshirt freshman’s strength is his running ability.
