LB Borland plans return for No. 21 Wisconsin

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin star linebacker Chris Borland doesn't plan to miss another game because of a hamstring injury.

The 21st-ranked Badgers (6-2) play BYU on Saturday. Borland missed last week's 28-9 win at Iowa because of his sore hamstring.

Coach Gary Andersen said Monday that he'll know for sure in the next day or so about the status of Borland and other injured Badgers.

Borland is going a step further, saying he would be surprised if he wasn't playing Saturday. To start, he says he plans to return to practice Tuesday on at least a limited basis. Borland has a team-high 57 tackles and two sacks.

Top receiver Jared Abbrederis also suffered a chest injury last week after scoring a third-quarter touchdown.
