Here is the latest Wisconsin sports news from The Associated Press:

MIAMI (AP) -- Rickie Weeks homered twice and drove in four runs last night in the Milwaukee Brewers' 8-5 win over the Miami Marlins. Corey Hart also had a home run and four RBIs for the Brewers. John Axford pitched the ninth for his 25th save.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers receiver Greg Jennings enters the season uncertain about his long-term future in Green Bay. Jennings' contract is up at the end of the year, and he acknowledges that he could possibly be playing somewhere else next season. Jennings says he would love to stay in Green Bay, but "if I'm not, it is what it is."

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers acknowledges a lack of depth on the offensive line. Rodgers says the offensive line is probably "a little thinner" than in years past. The Packers take on the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday's season opener.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin No. 1 receiver Jared Abbrederis is trying to keep the same walk-on mindset that helped him climb to the top of the depth chart. Abbrederis expects to get more attention from opposing defenses after catching two touchdowns in the Badgers season opener. Wisconsin faces Oregon State on Saturday.
