Video: Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah Is Practicing Today, Wearing Protective Brace On Knee

On this morning's Big Ten coaches' conference call, Bo Pelini said he expects Ameer Abdullah to play against Wisconsin, but he's "not a doctor," so the Nebraska coach isn't sure if his star running back will be good to go. 

If today's practice is any indication of Abdullah's status for Saturday, it appears the Huskers' senior tailback will at least attempt to give it a go against the Badgers.

Abdullah is practicing and has a protective brace on his left knee, which he injured Nov. 1 against Purdue.

Saturday's contest is essentially the Big Ten West Division's championship game. Abdullah being able to play would, obviously, significantly better Nebraska's chances of winning.

Nebraska and Wisconsin are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ABC.
