Crick, who sat out Saturday's win at Wyoming, will return to practice Monday afternoon, coach Bo Pelini said.
Crick suffered an apparent head injury at the end of a Sept. 17 game against Washington and didn't practice last week.
Pelini reiterated Monday that Crick got "dinged up" and didn't call the injury a concussion.
A second-team All-American in 2010, Crick has recorded 14 tackles, including three tackles for loss and a sack, in three games this season.
