Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook remains listed as questionable with a head injury on the Badgers' final injury report before the Big Ten championship game. Hornibrook sustained the injury in the second quarter against Minnesota last week. It will be interesting to see how much he plays Saturday. Backup QB Bart Houston has been excellent as part of a two-QB system the last six games.

Nobody knows for sure if Tiger Woods was contractually obligated to play a Nike putter but his answer Friday to a question about when he put the Scotty Cameron model back in his hands -- he won 13 of his 14 majors with it -- is telling. "The day (NIke) got out of the hard-goods side,'' Woods said Friday after shooting 65. Many were surprised when Woods ditched the Cameron at the 2010 Open and went full-time with a Nike Method (mostly) from 2011 on. Woods won some $80-million in prize money with that putter from 1999 through 2010.

After Friday's practice Broncos coach Gary Kubiwk said fullback Andy Janovich (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve today and that wide receiver Kalif Raymond will be promoted from the practice squad. Wide receiver Bennie Fowler (knee) was ruled out for Sunday by Kubiak as well. Raymond's move to the active roster means the Broncos will have eight receivers on the 53-man roster.

Tom Thibodeau was running through the ways in which Carmelo Anthony can hurt an opponent on offense and he finished with"he doesn't get enough credit for his playmaking." Anthony's assists are down following a season in which he reached a career-high. But on Wednesday he served mostly as a distributor and decoy early on vs. MIN.
