Wisconsin star tight end may be running by January

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's injured star tight end Travis Beckum should be able to run by January and prepare for NFL tryouts.

  That's according to Wisconsin Coach Bret Bielema.

  Beckum passed up a chance at the NFL draft to return to Wisconsin for his senior year.

  But he struggled with a hamstring injury early in the season and broke his leg Saturday against Illinois.

  Bielema says Beckum's spirits are improving and he should still have time to build up his draft position.

  Beckum ends his career at Wisconsin third in school history in both receptions and receiving yards.
