RB Corey Clement (leg) didn't take part in practice. Did some rehab work at the beginning but that was it.

Clement had a sports hernia surgery in 2015 and saw very limited time on the field. One year after rushing for 949 yards on 147 attempts (6.5 per rush), Clement slowed to 221 yards on 48 attempts (4.6 per).
Clement had only one 100-yard rushing game a year ago, when he picked up 115 yards against Rutgers on Halloween.
Wisconsin has a proud rushing history — just try forgetting Melvin Gordon’s 2,587 yards from 2014 — and a healthy Clement would do wonders for the Badgers.
