Nebraska kicker Bondi suffers injury


Nebraska will be without junior placekicker Mauro Bondi on Saturday against Miami.

Bondi, who handles kickoffs for the Huskers, suffered a broken clavicle in a motorcycle accident on Thursday in Lincoln, coach Bo Pelini said in a statement released Friday.

"We wish him the best for a quick recovery," Pelini said.

The coach did not specify an amount of time that Bondi is expected to miss.

He is 1 for 1 on field goals this year as a backup to freshman Drew Brown. Bondi has accounted for 12 touchbacks on kickoffs this year. Nebraska ranks eighth nationally with 14 touchbacks. Behind Bondi, it ranked sixth nationally with 48 touchbacks in 2013.

Miami visits Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska, to face the 24th-ranked Huskers at 8 p.m. in a game telecast on ESPN2.
