Wisconsin QB reportedly injured in practice, out indefinitely heading into season opener
Wisconsin’s quarterback room is taking a hit heading into the season opener just days away.
According to Jeff Potrykus with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, backup QB Chase Wolf went down during practice recently with an injury. That injury is currently unspecified, but Potrykus reports Wolf will be out indefinitely.
The Badgers open the season Saturday against Illinois State.
Can confirm report that #badgers No. 2 QB Chase Wolf went down in practice and is out indefinitely. Deacon Hill moves up depth chart, along with freshman Myles Burkett.

Wolf was slated as the No. 2 QB on the depth chart behind starter Graham Mertz and was the most experienced QB on the roster outside of Mertz. Wolf has completed 60% of his passes for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns across his career with the Badgers.
The injury to Wolf leaves Wisconsin dangerously thin at QB entering the 2022 season. Deacon Hill was a 3-star prospect via the 2021 recruiting class and Myles Burkett is a true freshman who was a 3-star prospect coming out of high school.
Hopefully, Mertz stays healthy and productive in 2022.
