Wisconsin redshirt sophomore LB Chris Orr (leg) is questionable for Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Orr (6'0/228) has practiced this week after missing the previous two games, but remains an uncertain proposition for the weekend. We'll have a more clear idea as to whether or not he can play as kickoff nears. For the season, the redshirt sophomore has registered 36 tackles (4.0 for loss), three sacks, an interception and a forced fumble.

Wisconsin junior S D'Cota Dixon (leg) is questionable for Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Dixon (5'10/204) warmed up prior to last Saturday's win over Iowa, but he did not ultimately register any statistical production in the contest. He initially sustained the leg injury against Maryland back on October 21. Look for Joe Ferguson to see a pumped up snap count if Dixon can't play versus the Gophs.
Nov 24 - 2:07 PM

Wisconsin redshirt sophomore LB Chriss Orr returned to practice.

Orr missed two contests with a left leg injury. He filled in for another injured top linebacker Jack Cichy earlier in the season and likely will return to that role.
Nov 23 - 12:03 PM

Wisconsin redshirt freshman TE Luke Benzschawel (leg) was ruled out for Saturday's game against Minnesota.

He's missed four consecutive games with the injury. Benzschawel hasn't recorded a catch this fall. The soonest he could return would be for the Big 10 Championship Game on Dec. 2. We don't like his odds.
Nov 20 - 3:11 PM

Wisconsin freshman RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 132 yards on 19 carries in Saturday's 24-10 win over Michigan.

Taylor has rushed for over 100 yards in six of his last seven games and eight of 11 games total this year. Taylor is up to 1,657 yards and 12 touchdowns during his sensational first season on campus. He needs to work on ball security and pass-catching, but Taylor has a few years to do so.
Nov 18 - 3:56 PM

Wisconsin sophomore WR A.J. Taylor had three catches for 79 yards and a score in Saturday's 24-10 win over Michigan.

Taylor, Danny Davis and TE Troy Fumagalli will all need to step up with Quintez Cephus, Jazz Peavy and George Rushing injured. Statistically, this was the best game of Taylor's career. He's now reached the end zone in two straight.

Wisconsin senior TE Troy Fumagalli was named a finalist for the Burlsworth Trophy.

The Burlsworth is handed out annually to the top college football player who began their career as a walk-on. Memphis WR Anthony Miller, Washington State QB Luke Falk and Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield (already a two-time winner) are the other finalists for this honor. For his part, the 6-foot-6, 240 Fumagalli owns a 33-422-3 receiving line on the year.

Wisconsin senior WR George Rushing (leg) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Michigan.

It's starting to look like Rushing (6'1/180) may just miss the entire season. He's been week-to-week throughout, but has not yet made his debut.

Wisconsin senior WR Jazz Peavy (right leg, personal) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Michigan.

Peavy remains on a leave of absence from the team to deal with personal matters. This will be his sixth straight game missed, and it doesn't look like the Badgers are anticipating an imminent return. When asked if Peavy and George Rushing's (leg) were close to returning, head coach Paul Chryst said, "I don’t know, but I don’t think so. Both different reasons, but right now I don’t see it being soon."

Wisconsin redshirt sophomore LB Chris Orr (left leg) will miss Saturday's game against Michigan.

Orr suffered the injury a few weeks ago at Indiana and missed last week's game against Iowa. We've yet to see a firm timetable for his return.

Wisconsin redshirt junior LB T.J. Edwards had five tackles, an interception and a pass break-up in Saturday's win over Iowa.

The 6-foot-1, 238-pound Edwards, a leader on Wisconsin's vaunted defense, now has 49 tackles, six TFL and four interceptions on the year. "Though vertically challenged, Edwards is a potential three down player for the next level who stacks well against the run while showing the ability to cover running backs or tight ends on passing downs," Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote.

Wisconsin redshirt junior T Michael Deiter is considering a jump to the NFL.

"Haven't thought about it that much," he said. "It's definitely a little bit of a possibility, yeah, but it's not something -- there's a lot of time, stuff like that." Deiter (6’5, 329), a three-year starter, started at center last year and had started games at guard prior to that prior to transitioning to left tackle this fall. He's been a strong replacement for Ryan Ramcyzk on the blind side, as Jonathan Taylor's rushing stats partly attest. Wisconsin (10-0, 6-0) hosts Michigan (8-2, 5-2) this weekend.

Nov 13 - 2:28 PM

Wisconsin freshman RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 157 yards on 29 carries in Saturday's 45-17 win over Iowa.

Taylor wasn't explosive -- his long carry was 19 yards, and he didn't score -- but boy was he efficient against a stingy Hawkeyes defense. He's gone over 150 yards five times this year, and over 100 yards seven times. The 5-foot-11, 214-pound true freshman has posted a ridiculous 1,525 yards and 12 touchdowns over his first 10 collegiate games.
Nov 11 - 7:14 PM

Wisconsin junior S D'Cota Dixon (leg) is dressed in advance of Saturday's game against Iowa.

Dixon has been dealing with a leg injury over the past three weeks. He practiced on Thursday, though, and it looks like he will be available to at least some degree for Saturday's contest.
