Two key players set to return from injury for Wisconsin
Wisconsin didn’t have any trouble racking up 34 points and 491 total yards in the Week 1 win over Western Kentucky. The Badgers could be even more dominating this Saturday, as they return two key players.
Thursday morning, Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that tight end Zander Neuville and defensive lineman Isaiahh Loudermilk are no longer on the injury report and will play this weekend against New Mexico. Both players missed the season opener.

Neuville caught nine passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns out of the tight end position for the Badgers a season ago. He’s primarily been used as a blocker, but his role as a pass-catcher could increase with the departure of Troy Fumagalli.
Loudermilk played in 11 games for Wisconsin last season, registering 11 tackles and 1.5 sacks as a redshirt freshman.
Wisconsin hosts New Mexico at noon ET at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday.
