Three Key Offensive Players Still Questionable for Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. – A week of practice has not cleared up the statuses of quarterback Alex Hornibrook, right tackle David Edwards and No.2 tailback Taiwan Deal for Wisconsin’s road game at Purdue Saturday.

All three players are listed as questionable on Thursday’s injury report: Hornibrook (head), Edwards (left arm), Deal (right leg).

Edwards has been battling arm/shoulder problems on and off since taking a hit to the shoulder in August’s fall camp. Causing some nerve damage, Edwards was hampered by the injury through the first six games of the season. UW lists redshirt freshman Logan Bruss as the No.2 right tackle.

Hornibrook remains in the concussion protocol after being slammed to the turf at the end of the first half of UW’s home win over Rutgers Nov.3. It was Hornibrook’s second concussion in three weeks, the first coming sometime during Wisconsin’s home win over Illinois Oct.20. Sophomore quarterback Jack Coan has struggled in two starts in Hornibrook’s place, going 29-for-51, 218 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions and three fumbles in losses at Northwestern and Penn State.

Deal came up limping after a 37-yard run on the opening drive of the second half, setting up the Badgers’ final points of the game. Sophomore Garrett Groshek will likely step in as the No.2 back in Deal’s absence.
