Here is the statement from Wisconsin:

MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin senior guard Traevon Jackson injured his right foot during Sunday's game at Rutgers, the UW Sports Medicine Staff announced Monday.

Jackson will undergo surgery on Thursday and his initial rehab process will begin in 2-3 weeks.

"I'm just trying to enjoy the process, learn from this and trust in Christ," Jackson said. "I know my teammates will come together and be stronger because of this. I'm looking forward to coming back mentally stronger than ever and more prepared to win championships and finish off the year and the seniors' careers the right way."

Jackson has started 84 consecutive games for UW and leads the Badgers with 49 assists on the season. Jackson was averaging 9.4 points per game at the time of the injury and ranks sixth in the Big Ten in free throw accuracy, shooting 85.4 percent at the line. Jackson scored seven points prior to his injury on Sunday.
