Badger football head coach Paul Chryst announced Thursday morning that the team has suffered yet another setback at running back, as junior Chez Mellusi will miss the rest of the season.
Melussi was injured in the 3rd quarter of the Badgers’ blowout win over Rutgers last week.
While Chryst did not specify the type of injury in his Thursday media availability, he did characterize the type of injury suffered as one that would not see Melussi ready for spring practice, much less the remainder of the current season.
The loss of Melussi follows the dismissal of freshmen Jalen Berger and a season ending injury to junior Isaac Guerendo.
Breakout freshman Braelon Allen will move to the top of the Badgers’ depth chart, followed by sophomore Julius Davis and junior Brady Schipper.
#18 Wisconsin will host Northwestern on Saturday, with coverage on ESPN La Crosse 105.5 beginning at 9am.
