Badgers Defense -- Already Thin In Experience -- Suffers Injury Hits

Two key defensive players for the Wisconsin Badgers are dealing with injuries. 

One -- junior end Garrett Rand -- could miss the whole 2018 season with an Achilles injury.  Redshirt sophomore end Isaiahh Loudermilk had knee surgery this spring to clean-up leftover problems from previous injuries.  Badgers coach Paul Chryst says Loudermilk has been progressing his rehab.  Wisconsin has to replace three senior ends who graduated -- Alec James, Chikwe Obasih, and Conor Sheehy.  Rand has played in 28 games as a nose tackle and was being moved to end.  Loudermilk missed three games last season but played well during the Orange Bowl.
