The Wisconsin Badgers are preparing to be without two of their top offensive weapons when they take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday.
Tight end Austin Traylor suffered an arm injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s Big Ten opener against Iowa and is out indefinitely. Wide receiver Alex Erickson suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the 10-6 loss to the Hawkeyes and is going through the teams concussion protocol. He is not expected to be ready to play this week.
Erickson leads the Badgers in receptions with 26 and receiving yards with 350. Traylor has 10 catches for 156 yards and three touchdowns.
Troy Fumagalli is expected to take Traylor’s spot and be backed up by Eric Steffes.
