University of Wisconsin tight end Travis Beckum is not sure if he'll play on Saturday in the Badgers' opener against Akron at Camp Randall Stadium.

The senior is getting over a sore right hamstring. Beckum says his mind tells him he's 100-percent, but his body is saying something else.

Badger Head Coach Bret Bielema says Beckum will probably suit up on Saturday, and his playing time will depend on how he feels. He practiced in full pads Tuesday.

Also, senior linebacker Jonathan Casillas missed practice with a knee injury. For now, at least, sophomore Blake Sorenson is expected to start in his place.
