The Wisconsin Badgers could be without one of their starters in the secondary for the rest of the day against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Second-half injuries are creeping in on what has been a tight and low-scoring affair between the two Big Ten schools.
Cornerback Derrick Tindal has been announced as questionable to return for the rest of the fourth quarter. The Badgers confirmed that their cover corner might not come back for the final few defensive series after he left the game in the second half.
Tindal, who conceded the game-winner to Ohio State last week, had another tough day at the office due to injury. This is also the type of break that he didn’t have in mind when he thought about getting back on track after he cost the Badgers a potential upset last week over the Buckeyes.
With Tindal out, the Badgers have made the usual adjustment to their cornerback depth chart for the rest of the second half. Sojourn Shelton, Titus Booker and Luben Figaro are now the three cornerbacks on the field for Wisconsin in their attempt to hold onto a late lead against the Hawkeyes.
The injury break is tough for Tindal, who wanted badly to redeem himself from last week’s loss to Ohio State. He was on track with a handful of tackles in the low scoring affair, but will have to wait on word from the training staff before he makes any return to the field to turn the story of his season around.
