Wisconsin could be without one of its running back pieces for a while.

According to Jeff Potrykus with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, running back Chez Mellusi sustained an injury in the win over Northwestern. Potrykus reported it as an “apparent serious injury” for Mellusi.

It appears to be a problem with Mellusi’s arm following an awkward landing. According to Potrykus, Mellusi could potentially miss extended time or the rest of the season.

We will have to see what Jim Leonhard says about Mellusi’s status when he addresses the media this week. Though Braelon Allen is the top back for the Badgers, Mellusi has rushed for 223 yards and a touchdown on 56 carries.

Mellusi appeared in 9 games during the 2021 season before a lower-body season-ending injury.
