Friday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers receiver James Jones knows coach Mike McCarthy was upset about Jones' two costly fumbles last week. But the rookie says he was more upset than the coach. Brett Favre says he won't stop throwing the ball to Jones. Favre says he can't lose confidence in him, or in any of his teammates.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre has already broken a number of records this season, but now he's on the verge of one he doesn't really want. With his next interception, Favre will break a tie with George Blanda and become the NFL's all-time interception king. He says he's not overly concerned about it. He says he doesn't like to throw interceptions, but they happen.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy will be keeping a close eye on receiver Greg Jennings in practice today. The coach says the way Jennings performs in practice today will go a long way toward determining his availability for Sunday's game against Washington at Lambeau Field. The Packers' Number 2 receiver has been nursing a sore hamstring this season.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- There are a handful of challenges facing Wisconsin men's hockey team in the upcoming season, but coach Mike Eaves points to youth first. The Badgers are the youngest team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. But their nine-person freshman class includes three first-round NHL draft picks.
