First Nuclear Option Wobbler?

At Politico today, Burgess Everett wrote that McConnell is wagering the Senate on the nuclear option over Judge Gorsuch. What I haven't seen mentioned by anyone is this:

“We’ll end up with a Supreme Court that has far more extreme justices on both sides of the aisle,” said Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who worries the Senate is being ruined. “On our side of the aisle it’s being sold as a badge of honor right now, as a great thing. And that’s what I’ve been railing about.”

Does  that mean Corker is considering voting against removing the filibuster? Once again, we need three Republicans to do so (or at least abstain).
