Linebacker Jack Cichy out for season for No. 11 Wisconsin

BY foxsports • October 24, 2016

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Linebacker Jack Cichy, the leading tackler for No. 11 Wisconsin, will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.

The injury is the latest setback for a defense that has weathered adversity to remain one of the stingiest units in the country.

Cichy hurt his left shoulder near the end of the first half in the 17-9 win on Saturday over Iowa. He returned to play in the second half before leaving for good in the fourth quarter.

Linebacker Vince Biegel, who just returned from a foot injury, said Cichy couldn't lift his left arm after the game.

Cichy finishes the season with 60 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks. Wisconsin (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten) also lost starting linebacker Chris Orr in the season opener.
