Wisconsin is up big on Rutgers but it will have to finish the remainder of that game without a running back.

Chez Mellusi has been ruled out for the rest of the game after suffering a left leg injury.

Mellusi was having a great game prior that injury. He finishes with 15 carries for 75 yards, plus a touchdown. He was on pace to have 100+ on the ground again for the 3rd time in 5 games.

His best game during that stretch was when he had 149 yards and 1 touchdown on 27 carries in a win against Purdue. He also had 145 yards and 1 touchdown on 21 carries in a 24-0 win against Illinois.

Yes, Wisconsin has this game wrapped up, but Mellusi is still a very important player for the Badgers. They have 3 big games left as they look to try and get to Indianapolis.
