MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says he expects injured running back John Clay to get limited practice time this week.
Clay sprained his right knee in a win over Purdue on Nov. 6 and didn't play during Saturday's 83-20 victory over Indiana. Bielema says Monday that Clay's status for Saturday's game at Michigan (7-3, 3-3 Big Ten) is still to be determined.
The sixth-ranked Badgers (9-1, 5-1) proved they didn't need the conference's reigning offensive player of the year against the Hoosiers.
With Clay sitting, Montee Ball ran for 167 yards and three touchdowns in his first career start and freshman James White added 144 yards and two scores.
Wisconsin is the only school in the FBS with three running backs that have at least 500 yards rushing.
