Badgers LB Armstrong out of hospital after injury

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says backup linebacker Ethan

Armstrong has left the hospital but is expected to need surgery

after injuring his hip in the Badgers’ victory over Penn State on

Saturday.

Armstrong was hurt on a kickoff in the second quarter of

Saturday’s game, and was taken off the field in an ambulance after

spending several minutes down on the field. Bielema says Armstrong

had an issue with his hip before Saturday’s game and was taken off

by ambulance only as a precaution.

He was released from the hospital Saturday night.
