LINCOLN, Neb - As Nebraska looks to move on from their 45-7 loss to second-ranked Michigan, they're going to need to have a short memory. 

The Huskers have a short week, taking on the Illinois Fighting Illini on Friday night. Matt Rhule said Monday, his team did practice in full pads on Sunday night, something they usually don't do the day after a game. At practice, Rhule says, he saw big strides from quarterback Jeff Sims who's dealing with a high-ankle sprain, but he also is confident in the whole QB room.

"Jeff looked great, Heinirch looked good, Chubba looked good," Rhule said. "I'm getting them both ready, but I have full confidence in Heinrich. Even in the loss, for Heinrich, I saw some good things... I saw him compete, I saw him and Billy [Kemp IV] work well against man coverage. I saw some things that I saw in our run game too, just have to get it back to what it was doing."

Nebraska was nearly shutout for the first time since the late 1960's on Saturday. Matt Rhule did not mince words about hoping his team plays to a higher level on Friday.

"We have some really good players who are going to be in the National Football League... They need to show up," Rhule said. "And that's not me calling anybody out, that's me showing major confidence that they can do it. We have players who can wreck a game... I want to see them wreck a game."

Rhule did note a few injury updates as well, saying defensive back Deshon Singleton is out on Friday night and will miss an "extended period of time." Additionally, after spending time in the hospital, linebacker Luke Reimer has also been ruled out.

Kick off on Friday is set for 7:00 p.m. central time, 6:00 p.m. mountain on FS1.
