Monday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- It could very well be the Packers' biggest game of the season on Thursday. And Brett Favre has some concerns. Yes, the Packers are 10-and-1, far exceeding the wildest of expectations for this season. But Favre still can't shake his nagging concern that the Packers' young players are too loose and carefree considering what's at stake. He says they also might be headed for a fall. Those words came after the Packers turned in a not-so-sharp practice yesterday, only four days away from what promises to be their toughest game of the season at Dallas Thursday night. Favre says he worries each week that the team's complacency will creep back on it.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- There's a new, yet familiar face on the Green Bay Packers. Marviel Underwood returned to the team yesterday at the Packers' practice. Needing depth at safety after injuries to Nick Collins and Aaron Rouse, the Packers re-signed Underwood after releasing him in August. Underwood worked out for several teams after the Packers released him, but none was willing to take a chance on the surgically repaired ligaments in his right knee. So when Underwood saw a number with a 920 area code pop up on his phone on Friday night, he was thrilled. Underwood says he never gave up hope that he would return to the NFL someday.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Nick Collins 'has a chance' to start Thursday night's game in Dallas. He has been out of the lineup because of a knee injury. The league did not require the Packers to file an injury report on Sunday, but Collins said he fully participated in practice. Collins says they're going to take their time. But says at yesterday's practice, he felt great.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Marquette women's basketball team returns home to host William & Mary tonight. On Friday, the Golden Warriors couldn't get over an 11-point half-time deficit and lost to Gonzaga 77-64. The loss was the second consecutive road loss for Marquette. Their record is now two-and-two. William & Mary is also two-and-two so far this season. Tonight's game at the Al McGuire Center gets underway at 7. It marks the first time the two teams have played.
