LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska coach Bo Pelini isn't as optimistic as he was last week about whether star running back Ameer Abdullah would be full strength for Saturday's game at No. 22 Wisconsin.

Abdullah left the Nov. 1 game against Purdue with a sprained and bruised left knee. Pelini said Monday that Abdullah didn't practice during the 11th-ranked Cornhuskers' bye week, though ''he worked out on the field.''

Last Tuesday, Pelini said the three-time 1,000-yard rusher was ''doing great'' and should be ''100 percent'' for the Badgers.

Pelini said Monday he still believed Abdullah would be fine but added, ''I'm not a doctor.''
