Excerpts in popular and unanswered widget for Q&A

Is there any way to display and excerpt and date when you use the Q&A questions widget to display recent, popular and unanswered questions?

It would be nice if i could do something similar to the recent custom post types plugin widget. I've attached a screenshot to show you the difference - the top one was created by the the custom post types plugin and the bottom two are using the inbuilt Q&A widgets that come with the Q&A plugin - thanks
