Badgers' Biegel sidelined with foot injury

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

The Badgers could be lining up without the emotional leader of their defense for multiple weeks. ESPN is reporting senior linebacker Vince Biegel has had foot surgery and could miss 2-4 weeks.

Biegel's father told ESPN his son had a minor crack in his foot. The injury had been bothering Biegel for a while. According to Biegel's father, Vince could have missed up to eight weeks if he had further injured the foot while playing on it. So, he elected to have a screw placed in the foot. 

Biegel has nine tackles and two tackles for loss for the Badgers. He has registered one sack this season while drawing substantial attention from opposing offenses. It's not immediately clear how the Badgers will shuffle the lineup for Saturday's game against Michigan.
