Wisconsin running back Corey Clement suffered a cut to his hand during an incident at his off-campus residence early Sunday morning, the Badgers announced in a release Thursday.
According to UW, Clement was returning home when he "witnessed a verbal dispute between a security guard at his apartment building and a group of individuals. Clement became engaged in the dispute. He and the security guard were then assaulted by the individuals, resulting in a cut to Clement's hand."
Clement, head coach Paul Chryst and Wisconsin's athletic department will not address the incident further pending an ongoing police investigation.
Clement attended practice on Wednesday, but did not participate. UW said that was planned, as Clement continues to rehab from his sports hernia surgery in late September.
Clement has appeared in two games this season, the opener against Alabama in which he rushed only eight times and the Oct. 31 game against Rutgers in which he rushed 11 times for 115 yards and three touchdowns. He was held out of last Saturday's win at Maryland due to lingering soreness.
Wisconsin is off this weekend and will next play Northwestern in Madison on Nov. 21.
