Wisconsin will have a loaded backfield when it hosts Northwestern on Saturday.

Jeff Potrykus of the Journal-Sentinel reported on Tuesday that running back Bradrick Shaw is “full-go” this week and should be ready for an increased role in the Badgers’ B1G opener vs. Northwestern.

Shaw was injured in Wisconsin’s Week 1 bout against Utah State and has been limited since. He’s rushed for 103 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries. Most of that came in the season opener, though, rushing for 84 yards against the Aggies.

With the emergence of freshman Jonathan Taylor — who leads the B1G in rushing yards per game — the Badgers have been stable on the ground. Throwing Shaw back into the mix could lead to an even more powerful attack.

It’s worth watching this weekend’s game to see how Shaw is utilized now that he’s back at full-strength.
