LINCOLN, Nebraska — Running back Ameer Abdullah made it through 11th-ranked Nebraska's practice wearing a brace on his left knee, a positive sign for the Cornhuskers as they prepare for Saturday's key Big Ten West game at No. 22 Wisconsin.

The three-time 1,000-yard rusher left the Nov. 1 game against Purdue in the first quarter with a sprained and bruised his knee. The Huskers didn't play last week.

Offensive coordinator Tim Beck said Abdullah participated in all drills Tuesday and "looked pretty good."

Abdullah declined interviews after practice.
