Wisconsin star suffers hand injury after being assaulted
Corey Clement just cannot catch a break.
The Wisconsin star tailback spent nearly two months sidelined and underwent sports hernia surgery before he returned two weeks ago against Rutgers. He went off for three touchdowns in his first game back but could not practice or travel with the team for its game against Maryland because of soreness.
Well, Clement was dealt another blow.
According to a university release, Clement suffered a cut on his hand following an incident at his off-campus residence early Sunday morning. The Wisconsin tailback reportedly witnessed a verbal dispute with a security guard at his apartment building and a group of students. Clement got involved in the altercation and was assaulted by the individuals, resulting in a cut on his hand.
Clement did not practice on Monday, but the team said that was not a result of the hand injury and that he was still recovering from his sports hernia surgery. The release said that Clement and Paul Chryst would not comment any further on the matter.
There was no word as to whether or not Clement will be available for the Badgers following their bye week.
