Husker head coach Scott Frost announced Monday that junior safety Deontai Williams will be out indefinitely with a shoulder injury.
“Deontai’s had a shoulder surgery and is done for the foreseeable future,” Frost said.
Williams was injured in the first half of the Huskers’ 35-21 win over South Alabama on Aug. 31.
Last season for the Huskers, Williams tallied 23 tackles, a forced fumble, and two interceptions. Williams, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, transferred to Nebraska in 2018 from Jones County Community College in Mississippi.
