MADISON (WKOW) -- The Badgers win at Illinois came at a hefty price as it cost them their starting center. Coach Paul Chryst said Monday center Dan Voltz will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a right knee injury.

"Dan meant a lot to this team and certainly the offensive line, and we're definitely out one, but it's – we’ve got guys that will -- we'll get them ready, should that opportunity present itself. I think that's part of coaching, is give them a chance to have success," Chryst said.

Left guard Michael Deiter will slide over to take Voltz' spot. Chryst also said wide receiver Rob Wheelwright will miss significant time after suffering a left leg injury. Wheelwright leads the team with four receiving touchdowns.
