Hornibrook Taken Off Injury Report, Badgers Getting Healthier

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook was taken off the injury report Thursday after clearing the concussion protocol, a sign that the junior will get the start when the Badgers host Rutgers Saturday morning.

Hornibrook missed last week’s 31-17 loss at Northwestern after sustaining a concussion sometime the previous weekend. He was never listed on two injury reports distributed by Wisconsin during the week, however, so his absence here could be a similar tactic.

Having a record of 25-5 (.833) as a starter, including 19-3 in Big Ten play, Hornibrook has posted a pass efficiency rating of 142.6 by completing 59.6 percent of his passes (93 of 156) for 1,251 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Saturday has a chance for UW to be the healthiest its been in weeks. While free safety Scott Nelson (right leg) and nose tackle Olive Sagapolu (right arm) are starters who have been ruled as out, strong safety D’Cota Dixon and defensive end Isaiahh Loudermilk are listed as questionable and have a “good chance” to play this week, according to what defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard said Wednesday. Both players have missed the last three games due to leg injuries.

UW also upgraded sophomore left tackle Cole Van Lanen from out to questionable. Van Lanen injured his left leg in Saturday’s loss.
