Another setback for Wisconsin quarterback Jon Budmayr. Less than a year after undergoing surgery to address nerve problems in his right elbow, Budmayr is experiencing similar problems in the elbow and is expected to miss all of spring practice.
Budmayr will be a redshirt sophomore this coming season. He missed the entire 2011 season.
The Badgers will have just two healthy quarterbacks when they open spring drills. Joe Brennan was the No. 2 quarterback behind Russell Wilson last season. He’ll help lead the Badgers during spring workouts. Curt Phillips, who has missed the last two seasons recovering from knee injuries, is also expected to be on the practice field this spring.
Joel Stave is a third quarterback in the mix. He’s a walk-on from Whitnall high school and is scheduled to redshirt this coming season.
