Wisconsin junior cornerback Derrick Tindal is not expected to miss any game action following surgery on his right hand.

Tindal had the minor procedure performed on Tuesday, according to a UW official.

Mention of Tindal’s injury was first noted in a Snapchat screenshot by The Daily Cardinal’s Lorin Cox.

Tindal has helped solidify the secondary for the Badgers through five games this season. The 5’11, 176-pound cornerback leads the team in interceptions (three) and is tied for the lead in pass break-ups with senior Sojourn Shelton (five).

The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., native also is tied for the conference lead in interceptions and passes defended.

The surgery comes at an opportune time, as the Badgers are in midst of their only bye week of the season in preparation for No. 2 Ohio State. UW will face the Buckeyes on Oct. 15 under the lights of Camp Randall Stadium.
