Wisconsin right tackle Beau Benzschawel is back on the practice field as the Wisconsin Badgers get ready for Saturday’s Big Ten matchup at Nebraska. Benzschawel has been out with a knee injury since preseason camp back in August.
The redshirt freshman took about half the snaps with the number-one unit and offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph says he did well. It’s possible that Benzschawel could play on Saturday.
The Badgers and Cornhuskers are both 0-1 in Big Ten play and both need a victory to stay in contention for the Big Ten Western Division crown.
The Badgers also don’t know if they’ll have wide receiver Alex Erickson for that game. Wisconsin’s leading pass catcher continues to go through a concussion protocol after being hurt in the loss to Iowa last Saturday.
Erickson says he went through a light cardio workout yesterday.
