Paul Chryst updates injury status on Kendric Pryor, Danny Davis
Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst addressed injury concerns for receivers Kendric Pryor and Danny Davis during his weekly press conference on Monday morning.
Both Pryor and Davis missed Wisconsin’s 17-7 loss to Northwestern over the weekend. Prior to that game, they were the Badgers’ two leading wide receivers.
Chryst told reporters Pryor is the closer of the two to returning, but would know more throughout the week.
"We'll find out during the week… KP will be the first to be back. The more they do, how do they respond to it. Certainly hopeful for one if not both." – Coach Chryst, on the possible return of Kendrick Pryor and Danny Davis this week

Chryst left the door open for both players to make a return against Minnesota this week. This is a must-win game for the Badgers’ Big Ten West title hopes.
After falling to Northwestern on Saturday, the Badgers will need to win out and hope the Wildcats lose twice if they’re to claim a division championship this season.
So far this season, Davis has three catches for 81 yards and a touchdown in two games. Pryor has five catches for 71 yards.
Wisconsin and Minnesota will kick off at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday.
