Badgers Hope to Have T.J. Edwards Back in Practice Soon

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

One purpose of fall camp for the Badgers is to get players into shape for the season and not sustain any injuries. There is also the importance of the already injured players to get healthy before the start of the season, which is now just two weeks away.

One player Wisconsin needs to be ready for that September 3rd opener is linebacker T.J. Edwards. Edwards injured his left foot during summer workouts and has been sidelined so far during fall camp.

"He is still out here with us. He still knows all of the plays." Said fellow linebacker Jack Cichy. "He is able to help us when we have questions on stuff. It's still a trifecta with me, him and Chris." 

There is some good news for the sophomore Edwards. The boot he has been wearing on his left foot came off this week, but he has yet to return to the practice field.

Edwards has game experience after leading the badgers with 84 tackles as a redshirt freshman last season.

"Sophomore linebacker Chris Orr said, "I mean it's weird not having him beside you but even on the sideline he is an extra pair of eyes on the field. He has great experience so it's not all that weird." 

The Badger's season opener is September 3 against LSU at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
