Wisconsin Badgers news, 8/20: Caleb Kinlaw leaves practice; quarterbacks in the dark

Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a practice update from Tuesday. A day after impressing with his reps as the No. 3 running back, freshman Caleb Kinlaw apparently left practice with an undisclosed injury.

Fox Sports Wisconsin's Jesse Temple talked to Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy, and not surprisingly, neither one is saying much about the quarterback battle. It also seems like neither knows yet who will be the starter.

"Even if I knew, I don't think I'd admit it," Tanner McEvoy said. "But we really don't. We talked to the coaches. They said we've got to keep going every day. We're making each other better. We've just got to go out there and compete. Worry about ourselves."

Temple also has a story on which Badgers are on Twitter and why. The full list of their handles is included at the bottom.'s John Veldhuis has another look at the quarterbacks' status.

We discussed whether freshman quarterback D.J. Gillins should redshirt this season on Tuesday; Potrykus has a nice feature on the Jacksonville native who's presumably the Badgers' next dual-threat quarterback.

Andy Baggot has a story for on Rob Havenstein becoming the undisputed leader of Wisconsin's offense.

Havenstein was a freshman in 2010 when he made note of tackle Gabe Carimi and guard John Moffitt, outgoing guys who made their voices heard as captains en route to being All-Americans that season.

Havenstein also noticed guard Kevin Zeitler, an All-American in 2011, and tackle Josh Oglesby, guys who didn't have official titles per se, but still led with their quiet, no-nonsense intensity.

UW will no longer print glossy game programs for football, basketball, hockey or volleyball. The "Varsity" app will fill that void. If it's anything like the digital "Varsity" magazine the athletic communication puts out, this change should be just fine.

2015 tight end commit Kyle Penniston represents Wisconsin in the latest Rivals250 at No. 232.
