Badgers will have a healthy offensive line against Spartans

The University of Wisconsin Badgers may finally get their first-string offensive line back for Saturday's game at Michigan State.

Senior guard Kraig Urbik and sophomore tackle Gabe Carimi have fully taken part in the Badgers' practices the last two days. Both are coming off knee injuries and Wisconsin has not had its starting line intact since the loss to Ohio State on Oct. 4.

Carimi was injured that, while Urbik was hurt the following week against Penn State. Barring any last-minute problems, both Urbik and Carimi are due back on Saturday.

Wisconsin is 1-4 in the Big Ten and 4-4 overall. Michigan State is still playing for a Rose Bowl bid at 4-1 in conference play. The Spartans are 7-2 overall.
