Starting tackle Jason Chapman says he has fully recovered from a knee injury.

Defensive end Matt Shaughnessy says he's good-to-go after suffering a broken fibula.

Badgers' assistant Charlie Patridge says starting tackle Mike Newkirk should also be ready for the Akron contest, along with starting end O'Brien Schofield, back-up ends Brendan Kelly, Louis Nzegwu, and Dan Moore, and reserve tackle Jeff Stehle.

Sophomore end Kirk DeCremer has missed a lot of practice time with a sore back and Patridge says he'll be used as a situational pass rusher.
