Email Joe to talk about the Gophers.
The Gophers listed their leading wide receiver, Derrick Engel, as questionable on this week's injury report. He is listed as a possible punt returner but isn't among the receivers on the two-deep roster for Saturday's game against Wisconsin.
Engel suffered a knee injury in Sunday's practice and has been limited to punt return duty in practice, Coach Jerry Kill said, declining again Thursday to give more specifics about the injury.
