UW Football: Melvin Gordon Getting Healthy?

Madison (WQOW) -- Wisconsin's spring football game is set for Saturday, April 20, and because of injuries, Badgers head coach Gary Andersen says there won't be a whole lot of live action.

Running back Melvin Gordon is one of the guys who's a little nicked up.  The sophomore is expected to be one of the key contributors on offense this season.  Fortunately for him and the Badgers, Gordon's ankle injury doesn't appear to be too serious, although it's slowed him down recently.

"You just gotta take mental reps," says Gordon, "that's what Coach A said, if you're hurt, you're sitting out. you just gotta soak everything in and just make sure you're paying attention so you know what's going on, so I haven't missed a beat with the plays or anything like that. just go out there and feel comfortable cutting on my foot again."

Gordon expects to be a full participant in Wednesday's practice.  Friday's practice is moving indoors & will be closed to the public, so the Badgers will now host open scrimmage on Monday at, 4:00 P.M.
