There is a reason college football rosters are so big.

Coaches recruit numerous guys at the same position to not just have a starter and a backup. Coaches have to recruit backups for the backups of the backups to the starter.

You get the point. Depth is absolutely needed.

In fall camp, injuries often happen, which forces the depth chart to shift  for seemingly every school. On Monday, Wisconsin’s tight end depth chart may have shifted a bit with this news:

Luke Benzschawel, according to Jeff Potrykus’ article at the Journal Sentinel, has battled through right knee injuries since 2017. On Monday, it seems as though Benzschawel suffered another injury to that knee.

Benzschawel was reported No. 2 on the depth chart behind Jake Ferguson. After Ferguson and Benzschawel, the Badgers have a redshirt freshman and two other true freshmen on the roster at tight end.
