QB Martinez banged up in loss

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez returned to the game in the third quarter against No. 18 Texas A&M on Saturday night.

Martinez didn't play the rest of the first half after he was injured when a teammate appeared to accidentally step on his right ankle in the first quarter.

Martinez has missed time recently with a right ankle injury but played the entire game in the ninth-ranked Cornhuskers' win over Kansas last week.

A lineman looked to have caught Martinez on the ankle as he tried to run with about five minutes left in the first quarter.

Martinez was replaced by Cody Green.
