The No. 18 Wisconsin Badgers released their latest updated injury report on Thursday, two days prior to a key Big Ten West showdown with the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Wisconsin still lists outside linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel and tight end Zander Neuville (both right leg) as questionable for Saturday’s nighttime match-up with the Hawkeyes.
Head coach Paul Chryst said both players’ statuses would be decided around game time.
“Yeah, I think they’re both to where we can say that they’d be a game-time decision and kind of see,” Chryst said. “Both have done some things this week and yet certainly not equivalent what a game would be. But you appreciate, they both want to play and have done everything they can to give themselves that chance, so they’ll be on the bus and going down and truly will be able to find out in pregame really where they’re at.”

#Badgers coach Paul Chryst said today both Zander Neuville and Andrew Van Ginkel will travel. My thoughts: Would be surprised if Van Ginkel can go. Think Neuville has a chance.— Jeff Potrykus (@jaypo1961) September 20, 2018
