Badgers football: Troy Fumagalli to miss Northwestern game with left leg injury

September 30, 2017 GMT

University of Wisconsin tight end Troy Fumagalli will miss Saturday’s contest with Northwestern at Camp Randall Stadium due to a left leg injury, per a UW official.

UW did not release information on when Fumagalli suffered the injury.

Through three games this season, Fumagalli leads the team with 15 catches, 236 yards and three touchdowns.

The Badgers will lean more heavily on Zander Neuville and Kyle Penniston in Fumagalli’s absence, while Luke Benzschawel could also see playing time at tight end.

Kickoff for Saturday’s game is set for 11 a.m.
