Wisconsin center Dan Voltz is expected to play Saturday, when the Badgers host the Purdue Boilermakers at Camp Randall Stadium. Coach Paul Chryst says the junior has stepped up his workouts this week, after he hurt his left elbow near the end of last Saturday’s Badger victory at Nebraska.
If Voltz plays, it would prevent the Badgers from having to go with a fifth different offensive line combination in seven weeks.
Dare Ogunbowale is expected to get the bulk of the carries at running back as freshman Taiwan Deal continues to struggle with an ankle injury from last week.
Junior running back Corey Clement is said to be getting better after sports hernia surgery, but Chryst could not say when he could be ready to play again. Wisconsin will try to improve to two-and-one in the Big Ten with a win over Purdue. The Boilermakers are still looking for their first conference win.
