Paul Chryst reveals severity of shoulder injury to Rachad Wildgoose
Rachad Wildgoose was not going to be able to return this season, Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst revealed Thursday evening.
The defensive back for the Badgers was injured in the loss to Northwestern. It was initially unclear if he would be able to return for the game against Minnesota, but the Axe Game was canceled.
After the cancellation of that game, Wildgoose declared on social media that he was declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft and would begin focusing on his preparation for the next level. However, Chryst said during his radio show that the shoulder injury to Wildgoose was season-ending:

It has certainly been a weird and crazy season for the Badgers. After seeing two games canceled early on, Wisconsin returned to action against Michigan and Northwestern before the game against Minnesota was canceled.
Now, the Badgers will be without Wildgoose the rest of the way as they take on Indiana in Week 7.
Best of luck to Wildgoose on his recovery and preparation for the NFL.
