As Nebraska continues to deal with a rash of mostly minor injuries at the wide receiver positions, a few reserves have received significant practice time with the top units.

Brady Pelzer, for instance, has taken full advantage.

A redshirt freshman from Bellevue East High School, Pelzer has made several nice catches over the course of preseason camp, including a long TD reception from Tommy Armstrong during Saturday's scrimmage.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Pelzer made the grab, spun out of a defender's grasp and bolted into the end zone.

Bellevue East fans probably aren't surprised. As a senior, Pelzer caught 38 passes for 628 yards and nine touchdowns. He also rushed 40 times for 315 yards and five scores while also contributing on defense.

If Nebraska's injuries continue to be a factor, Pelzer appears capable of  contributing for the Huskers.
