A week after being a hero against Northwestern, Taariq Allen got hurt against Michigan. Now he's working his way back.

After undergoing season ending knee surgery last fall, Nebraska sophomore wide receiver Tariqq Allen has been cleared and is trying to get back to 100 percent.

"He's looking good, about as good as you can coming off that type of surgery," said senior receiver Quincy Enunwa at Big Ten Media Days. "He's got a whole month to get back to 100 percent. We are happy where he's at right now.

"I think he's gotten past it. When it first happened he was down, but he's definitely picked himself up."

Allen was hurt on the first play of the game against Michigan and it immediately looked like an injury that would take some to recover from.

In eight games last year, he recorded two catches for 11 yards, including a big fourth quarter touchdown catch against Northwestern that pulled Nebraska within five points. The Huskers went on to beat the Wildcats in a come from behind fashion.
