Wisconsin LB Jack Cichy suffers ACL tear, will miss 2017 season

Wisconsin LB Jack Cichy suffers ACL tear, will miss 2017 season

The 6-2, 223-pound sophomore was on the Bednarik and Nagurski watch lists in 2017 after earning honorable mention All-Big Ten honors in 2016 and being a Butkus semifinalist. In those starts, he had 60 tackles, including seven tackles for loss.

Cichy was slated to be named a captain for the Badgers this season.

After losing both TJ Watt and Vince Biegel a year ago, Cichy was going to be the cornerstone of the Wisconsin defense.

His presence in the middle of Wisconsin's linebacking corps was one of the reasons the Badgers had such a stout defense under Justin Wilcox last season, even if edge rushers like Vince Biegel and T.J. Watt seemed to garner most of the attention.

Cichy was scheduled to start alongside junior T.J. Edwards, who had a team-high 89 tackles previous year. The week before he was the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Week after a 15-tackle performance against Ohio State. He's more than capable to take over as the starter and don't be surprised to see the defense not miss a step in Cichy's absence. During the 2017 spring practice, Orr admitted that he was looking forward to returning to the field after an injury of watching from the sideline.

"You hate it for Jack", head coach Paul Chryst said in a press release via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The senior linebacker redshirted in 2014, so he has already used up his eligibility, but he's likely to apply, and be granted, a medical redshirt.
