With the football Badgers preparing for Saturday’s non-conference home game against Fresno State, the team is trying to ward off the flu bug. At least 10 members of the team have been hit with flu-like symptoms, although it’s not known if any of the players have contracted the H1N1 virus or swine flu.
Coach Bret Bielema kept his team out of full pads for yesterday’s workout and he’s not sure who will be available when the Badgers are set to kickoff on Saturday.
Bielema told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that two Badgers, left tackle Gabe Carimi and reserve defensive end Brendan Kelly have already fought through the flu. The coach declined to identify all of the players that are currently battling with flu conditions.
