Earlier this week, the Wisconsin Badger coaches were hoping to have tailback Corey Clement back for this weeks game against Hawaii, if not the following week in the Big Ten Conference opener against the Iowa Hawkeyes at Camp Randall Stadium.
But U-W official announced today that Clement is scheduled to have Sports Hernia surgery next week and could miss four to fix weeks of the Big Ten Conference season.
Clement carried the ball just eight times in the opener against Alabama and has been idle since.
Dare Ogunbowale and Taiwan Deal are now one and two on the Badger depth chart and Alec Ingold, who was moved from linebacker to running back last week, could see some time as well.
Ingold averaged 178.8 yards per game as a senior at Bay Port High School as a quarterback and can play tailback or fullback. Ingold is currently listed third at the tailback spot on the depth chart.
