Wisconsin quarterback Jim Sorgi may have someone else barking out the signals for him in practice this week.

But he declared himself physically OK otherwise Monday after Ohio State linebacker Robert Reynolds jammed his fingers into his neck and choked him Saturday, knocking him out of the Badgers' 17-10 win over the Buckeyes.

Ohio State suspended Reynolds for this week's game against No. 9 Iowa for the infraction. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said Reynolds' actions "have no place in our game."

Sorgi said he accepted Reynolds' apology when he called Sunday night, and he's not holding any grudges.

"I know how things get during the game, and I know how things can happen," he said. "He made a mistake. It's a sign of a man when you can make a mistake like that and call and apologize for it."
