Wisconsin Head Coach Bret Bielema met with the media following today's practice as Senior Running Back Montee Ball returned to the field.
Ball returned to practice today.
Bielema said Montee Ball looked good in his first day back.
"I though he looked crisp," said Bielema. "He's locked in. We'll keep him out of contact for the rest of this week.."
Hill could play
Junior Linebacker Nick Hill could see some time at either middle linebacker or outside linebacker this season.
"Nick, I think it was last Wednesday or Thursday had an unbelievable practice," Bielema said. "Just really flashed and I made a big deal of it. He's battled through a lot personally off the field, and with injuries.
"At Wisconsin, if we have good players, we got to get them on the field. He's so athletic, he's rangy. We want someone who can run, a little more athletic."
- Senior Linebacker Mike Taylor and Junior Linebackers Ethan Armstrong and Chris Borland will be limited to one practice a day for the time being.
- Junior Defensive Tackle Beau Allen suffered an ankle sprain last week, but shouldn't miss any more practice time.
- Sophomore Wide Receiver Chase Hammond suffered a concussion last Saturday. Bielema expects him to return soon.
- Bielema mentioned Freshman Darius Hillary had a good, first day at Safety.
