Wisconsin is already without linebackers Jack Cichy and Chris Orr for the rest of the season. So the Badgers need their remaining linebackers to remain healthy.
But Wisconsin listed linebackers T.J. Watt (left shoulder) and Griffin Grady (left shoulder) as questionable for Saturday’s game at Northwestern. They weren’t the only Badgers listed on the injury report, either.
Defensive back Natrell Jamerson, offensive lineman Jacob Maxwell and fullback Austin Ramesh are also questionable. Nose tackle Olive Sagapolu is listed as “out” because of a right arm injury.

Watt is third on the team with 42 total tackles, adding 9.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks. He also has six quarterback hurries.
Even with all the injuries, No. 8 Wisconsin hasn’t stopped being one of the nation’s best defenses. The Badgers will try to stay that way when they play at Northwestern at noon ET Saturday on ABC.
