Wisconsin: Bowling Without Hill

For those who were looking for a reason other than Erik Ainge to watch the first bowl game of the new year, Jan. 1's Outback bowl between Tennessee and Wisconsin, they may have just lost all motivation. It looks like Wisconsin's explosive sophomore running back P.J. Hill will not be suiting up for the bowl game, as his bruised left leg has kept him mostly off the field since the end of October, and he has yet to take part in bowl-prep practices.

Wisconsin: Back On Track

Wisconsin was pretty banged up when they beat up on Michigan last weekend. Starting tailback P.J. Hill played only sparingly and starting quarterback Tyler Donovan left the game midway through the fourth quarter after a helmet hit the back of his throwing hand so hard it left some Wolverine-colored paint marks. But head coach Bret Bielema is optimistic that the Badgers will get back on track in time for this weekend's game, their last of the regular season, and at 8-3, will be in good shape for whatever bowl game they are anointed to attend.

Wisconsin: On Second Thought, Maybe Not

When Wisconsin running back P.J. Hill came out of last week's game in the first quarter with a bruised foot, head coach Bret Bielema said he should be fine to play this week when the Badgers take on No. 1 Ohio State. What he should have said was, 'I'm not a doctor.' At this point, Bielema may be eating his words, as Hill's injury looks more serious than the coach made it out to be, and the Badgers' biggest offensive threat is suddenly questionable for the team's biggest game of the season.

Wisconsin: Hill Will Be Back

Week 9 in the Big Ten turned out the be the stars' week off. Michigan's Chad Henne and Mike Hart both sat out nurshing injuries and Wisconsin's star running back, P.J. Hill, played only one quarter before a bruised left foot kicked him off the field, as well. Head coach Bret Bielema said Hill has a bruise on the top of his foot, and although the halftime X-rays were negative, Bielema thought sitting Hill for the second half would be more prudent than putting him in, considering the Badgers' next opponent - Ohio State.

Wisconsin: Hubbard Hobbling

Wisconsin eeked out the win on Saturday night in the Vegas heat against UNLV, but senior wide receiver Paul Hubbard did not leave Sin City in a winning mood. The fifth-year senior limped off the field after injuring his right knee in the first play of the second half, blocking on a run by P.J. Hill. He spent the second half on crutches on the sideline, while freshman Kyle Jefferson took the field in his place.
