Injured Nebraska star Ameer Abdullah 'doing great'

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Star running back Ameer Abdullah is expected to be at full strength following a knee injury when Nebraska plays at Wisconsin on Nov. 15.

Coach Bo Pelini said Tuesday that Abdullah is ''doing great'' and should be ''100 percent'' for the game. The No. 15 Cornhuskers are off this week.

Abdullah left last Saturday's game against Purdue with a mild sprain and bruise to his left knee. He was hurt as he recovered Tommy Armstrong Jr.'s fumbled snap at the Purdue 1-yard line on the Huskers' second possession.

Abdullah has run for at least 200 yards in a nation-leading four games. He has 1,250 yards this season and is the only player in Nebraska history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in three straight years.
