Offensive coordinator Tim Beck said Abdullah participated in all drills Tuesday and "looked pretty good." Abdullah declined interviews after practice.
Coach Bo Pelini said Monday that he expects the three-time 1,000-yard rusher to play as the Huskers (No. 17 CFP, No. 11 AP) visit Wisconsin (No. 20 CFP, No. 22 AP) on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC).
Abdullah, the nation's No. 3 rusher with 1,250 yards, did not practice during the Huskers' bye week after their Nov. 1 win over Purdue, during which he suffered an MCL sprain to his left knee.
He was mentioned as a leading Heisman Trophy candidate before the injury limited him to 1 yard on six carries against the Boilermakers.
