UPDATE, Monday 10:47 a.m.: Tindal tweeted early Monday morning that he's "ok."


The Wisconsin Badgers' third practice after spring break ended in a scary situation Sunday, as multiple media reports noted sophomore cornerback Derrick Tindal was taken to UW Hospital at the end of practice. Tindal, who played a significant amount last season as a true freshmen in certain subpackages, tried to tackle redshirt freshman running back Taiwan Deal, which was first noted by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Jeff Potrykus. Fortunately, as seen below, it was reported Tindal had feeling in his extremities.

His teammates tweeted out prayers of support for the second-year cornerback.

Junior center Dan Voltz also suffered another injury Sunday, this time apparently to his left ankle -- the same one that he injured towards the end of last season.

Per the Wisconsin State Journal's Jason Galloway, redshirt freshman Michael Dieter slid in from his first-team right guard position, while junior Walker Williams filled in for Dieter.

Galloway also noted the Badgers scrimmaged with the first and second teams.

Through the power of social media, here's more highlights from Sunday's practice:

It appears you can't go a spring practice without true freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook's name coming up. GallowayPotrykus and ESPN Wisconsin's Zach Heilprin noted the Pennsylvania native in their recaps, along with other mentions below:

And a certain former Heisman Trophy finalist and Badger great apparently was at practice Sunday, showing love for junior wide receiver Reggie Love.
