The No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers released their final injury report to the media two days before their Saturday afternoon match-up against Purdue.
The big news is redshirt senior wide receiver Jazz Peavy will not play for the Badgers (5–0, 2–0 Big Ten) against the Boilermakers (3–2, 1–1) due to a right leg injury.
Peavy’s production so far has been contained to only five receptions for 55 yards, with his rushing threat diminished to only seven yards on three carries.
Head coach Paul Chryst admitted to reporters on Thursday morning that the injury has been lingering, though he does not believe it is long-term.
“It has to in some ways,” Chryst said when asked if the injury has affected Peavy’s ability to perform in previous games, “that if you’re not 100 percent, I think that affects everyone.”
Questionable for Saturday’s game (2:30 p.m. CT, BTN) are offensive linemen Jon Dietzen (right arm) and Micah Kapoi (right arm), along with running back Chris James (left arm) and kicker P.J. Rosowski (right leg).
Safety Patrick Johnson (right arm) and running back Taiwan Deal (right leg) were downgraded to out from Monday’s preliminary report, joining defensive end Chikwe Obasih (left leg) and wide receiver George Rushing (left leg).
