There were a couple of surprise members of the injury list before the game on Saturday against Illinois, including OL Tyler Beach, K Jack Van Dyke and, eventually, RB Isaac Guerendo. The Badgers were still able to shutout the Illini without the help of these three contributors, and blocking TE Jack Eschenbach and ILB Mike Maskalunas, and the preliminary injury report ahead of the Army game...still includes all of those players!

It will be interesting to see what the offensive line looks like against Army if Bruss is still unable to play. The unit had their best game of the season against Illinois so perhaps Tanor Bortolini gets another look to see if they can continue churning out yards against Army’s undersized defensive front.
The depth chart is mostly the same, and all of the “questionable” players are still listed in their usual spots, except for freshman RB being promoted to co-RB2 now that Jalen Berger has been dismissed from the team. Allen was already getting plenty of carries so this is a promotion in name only.

We will keep you posted throughout the week if any more injuries are reported or if the depth chart is changed (it won’t be unless another running back is dismissed from the team.
