The injury news involving Badgers running backs was not great on Monday afternoon.
Three Wisconsin running backs, including starter Corey Clement, were listed on the team’s injury report. Clement missed the No. 11 Badgers narrow win over Georgia State with a left leg injury and he is questionable going into their Saturday showdown with No. 8 Michigan State.
