Fennimore native and Badgers senior wide receiver Luke Swan suffered a severe hamstring injury late in the first half against Illinois. He will miss the rest of the season according to head Coach Bret Bielema.
"Luke is a great kid," Bielema said Monday at his weekly press conference. "It was a hard day yesterday. It is tough for everybody."
Swan is expected to have surgery on Wednesday.
The loss of Swan is the second hard hit to the Badgers receiving corps this season. Senior Paul Hubbard was lost for the year in Week 2 at UNLV.
Swan was second on the team in catches with 25 for 451 yards and two touchdowns.
