Wisconsin cornerback Derrick Tindal was not on the team’s injury report Thursday and appears ready to return for the Badgers’ game against No. 7 Nebraska this week.

Derrick Tindal is no longer listed on the #Badgers injury report, so good news for him. Natrell Jamerson questionable.

Tindal sustained a right leg injury in the first half of Wisconsin’s 17-9 win over Iowa last Saturday and was listed as questionable earlier in the week.
Tindal’s return is great news for the Badgers. The junior leads the team in interceptions (3) and passes defended (6). He’ll obviously be a vital asset for Wisconsin’s defense when it matches up against Nebraska and quarterback Tommy Armstrong, who averages 230.1 passing yards per game.
Wisconsin needed some good injury news, especially after inside linebacker Jack Cichy was ruled out for the season earlier this week with a torn pectoral.
