Wisconsin releases week 1 injury report for contest vs. Illinois State

·2 min read

Madison, Wis. — University of Wisconsin officials released its first injury report ahead of its season opener vs. the Illinois State Redbirds on Monday. 

The Badgers already have five players ruled out due to injury for week one and three others listed as out for the season.

UW also released its official two-deep for both the offense and defense.

Although he’s not yet listed, fifth-year quarterback Chase Wolf, who was the backup to Graham Mertz, suffered what appears to be a season-ending injury of his own and will likely be added to the injury report by week’s end.

Here is a look at Wisconsin football’s injury report for Week 1:
