Gophers update: Travis, Ekpe and Elmore expected back for Nebraska game

The Gophers hope to have safety Darius Travis and defensive linemen Scott Ekpe and Gaelin Elmore back from injury for Saturday's game against Nebraska, coach Jerry Kill said Tuesday.

But Kill said it's unlikely that they'll have offensive lineman Brian Bobek and Josh Campion or cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun back from their injuries.

The Gophers (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) have a two-game winning streak against Nebraska (2-4, 0-2), and this one is already close to being a sellout at TCF Bank Stadium.

Brooks named Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week

Gophers running back Shannon Brooks was named Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week on Monday, along with Michigan safety Jabril Peppers.

Brooks rushed 17 times for 176 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-13 win over Purdue. That's the most rushing yards for a Gophers freshman running back since Laurence Maroney put up 179 on Illinois in 2003.

Brooks is the first Gophers player to earn Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors since Chris Streveler on Sept. 22, 2014.
