Sports Minute: Here is the latest Wisconsin sports news from The Associated Press
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin is rested after a bye week and ready to get star tailback Melvin Gordon going again. Gordon was held to 38 yards on 17 carries two weekends ago in the 19th-ranked Badgers' 37-3 win over Western Illinois. Coach Gary Andersen is confident that Gordon and the running game will bounce back. Bowling Green is next for Wisconsin this weekend at Camp Randall Stadium.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg takes full blame for the timeout call that negated a tying touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Mornhinweg says he tried to get coach Rex Ryan's attention on the sideline on the fourth-and-4 play from the Packers 36 with just over 5 minutes remaining because he saw something he didn't like. Mornhinweg says he realized quarterback Geno Smith had fixed the issue.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera hit back-to-back home runs in the ninth inning to help the Detroit Tigers win 8-6 over the Minnesota Twins last night. Kyle Ryan earned the victory by recording the last out of the eighth. Joakim Soria converted his first save opportunity since being acquired for the Tigers despite allowing a leadoff double to Kurt Suzuki.
CONROE, Texas (AP) - Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's first court appearance in Texas on a child abuse charge has been delayed until October. Peterson has been indicted on a charge of reckless or negligent injury to a child and faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if found guilty. He says he never intended to harm his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch.
