RB Rahmir Johnson should be ready to go for Nebraska against a Purdue defense that is "much improved," according to NU OC Matt Lubick.
As he looks to get over the hump, Scott Frost says, "We’re going to focus on maybe some immediate impact guys a little more" this recruiting class.

By turning consistent flashes to consistency, the New York native shot all the way up the depth chart. Here's how he did it.
Not getting a Blackshirt when Nebraska distributed 12 of them in August "motivated me a lot," the Georgia native said.
"It's just tough," Scott Frost said of the Elkhorn South graduate's injury. "Teddy's just been improving by leaps and bounds since he got here."
"Yards after contact is something we talk about all the time,” says Matt Lubick, and that's an ability Jaquez Yant flashed Saturday night.
It's safe to say the Spartans' running back has Nebraska's attention. One assistant coach called him "one of the best running backs in the country."
Instead of entering the transfer portal, the third-year running back took his coach's words as a challenge. Now, he's the latest to start.
The expletives surely flew from couches across the state as the Huskers once again shot off an entire foot with kicking game blunders.
Ryan Held has given each of his top three running backs a chance early in a game, then deciding how to distribute carries from there.
Those Nebraska fans hoping a bell-cow running back emerges apparently will have to wait as a "committee approach" takes hold, for now.
The first words out of Scott Frost's mouth after Saturday's win? "I'm ready for next week," he said. How's that for intrigue?
Football came very naturally, says Doug DuBose, who is among those being inducted into the NU chapter of the College Football Hall of Fame.
Martinez averaged over 15 yards on his last 14 throws. Part of it is competition level, sure, but Nebraska's O-line certainly played a big role, too.
It seemed Nebraska coach Scott Frost was intent Saturday on backing Adrian Martinez publicly, a wise move, all things considered.
Looking for their running game to get some traction, the Huskers got what they needed — and may have found a new leading man in the process.
Parker Gabriel has his eyes on Nebraska's warmups ahead of its home opener. This live blog will be updated with what he sees.
We're less than 48 hours away from gameday. Some notes to ponder: Frost's evaluation of the O-line, the latest on young players, a visitor and more.
The Georgia native is in rare air. He became just the seventh Huskers player to start a season opener at a skill position as a true freshman.
No media availability on Wednesdays, but we tie up some loose odds and ends, beginning with an evaluation of Chris Hickman's game at Illinois.
Scott Frost called Cam Taylor-Britt's gaffe on special teams "a critical error." But don't expect the Huskers to turn away from No. 5.
Who's here, and who's not — and other notes — as the Huskers warm up on a steamy afternoon in Champaign, Ill.
Both Matt Lubick and Ryan Held were coy, but it appears the lead man will come from the trio of Gabe Ervin, Markese Stepp and Sevion Morrison.
The go-to list for all of the words, players and games you'll be talking about around the Big Ten and the nation.
