MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin running back Corey Clement has returned to practice but isn't participating at full speed three weeks after the team announced he needed sports hernia surgery.
Still, Badgers coach Paul Chryst said before practice on Thursday that Clement was day to day, and would not rule him out for Saturday's homecoming game against Purdue.
Chryst said that Clement was rehabbing his body and "the confidence as well."
Starting center Dan Voltz, who suffered an arm injury in the final moments of last Saturday's 23-21 victory over Nebraska has participated in drills and could be ready for the Boilermakers.
But running back Taiwan Deal, who missed most of the game with a high ankle sprain, appears doubtful for the Badgers (4-2, 1-1).
