Nebraska lineman Moore leaves team but may return

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has announced that offensive lineman

Tyler Moore has left the Nebraska football team to address personal

issues.

Pelini said Saturday that Moore, who hasn’t practiced since

Thursday, would be welcome to return.

Moore last year became the first Nebraska freshman to start on

the offensive line in a season opener. He started the first four

games at right tackle and appeared in nine games.

The sophomore from Clearwater, Fla., was the projected starter

at left tackle this season.

Pelini declined to elaborate on the circumstances surrounding

Moore’s departure.

Messages were left for Brian Moore, Tyler’s father.
