Linebacker Jack Cichy out for season for No. 11 Wisconsin
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.
