Wisconsin's Alex Hornibrook Remains Questionable

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook remains questionable as the Badgers prepare for the regular season finale against Minnesota Saturday, according to Monday’s injury report.

Hornibrook hasn’t played a full game since Oct.20, missing three games and being limited to one half of another due to a pair of concussions. Sophomore Jack Coan is 1-2 starting in place of Hornibrook, all coming on the road.

Coan won his first career game in Saturday’s 47-44 triple-overtime victory at Purdue. Finishing 16-for-24 for 206 yards and a career-best two touchdowns, Coan went 7-for-10 for 116 yards and the two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Should Hornibrook not play this weekend against the Gophers (5-6, 2-6 Big Ten), Coan getting the start would be his fifth appearance of the season, thus eliminating the original plan for him to redshirt this season.

Wisconsin right tackle David Edwards (left arm) and tailback Taiwan Deal (right leg) remain questionable for the second straight week. Both players did not travel to West Lafayette, Ind., Saturday.

The Badgers (7-4, 5-3 Big Ten) have won 14 straight against Minnesota. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN2.
