Wisconsin Badger junior fullback Derek Watt and senior defensive lineman Warren Herring both came out well from their first playing action since going down with injury in the opener against LSU.
Herring missed time with a knee injury and Watt had surgery on a broken bone in his foot and returned to action Saturday in the Badgers 52-7 win over Maryland.
Watt played roughly 15-16 snaps at fullback while Herring was in on roughly twice as many plays. Both can expect heavier workloads this week when the Badgers hit the road for a game at Rutgers.
