MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota coach Jerry Kill is back at work this week after his latest seizure.

Kill said Tuesday he's ``going full speed'' after the episode following Saturday's loss to Northwestern. Kill spent that night in a hospital for observation and was discharged the next morning after tests confirmed he was in ``excellent health,'' according to team physician Dr. Pat Smith.

The Gophers travel to Wisconsin this weekend, and quarterback MarQueis Gray's status is in question again. The senior has been wearing a walking boot on sprained left ankle he aggravated in Saturday's game.

Kill said Gray tried to jog on Tuesday morning and ``struggled a little bit with it.'' Kill said Gray is back to where he was two weeks ago, after initially suffering the injury on Sept. 15.
