Wisconsin LB Taylor out for season



AP Sports Writer

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin linebacker Mike Taylor suffered a "significant" injury to his right knee against Iowa and will miss the rest of the season.

Coach Bret Bielema confirmed Taylor's season-ending injury on Tuesday during the Big Ten coaches' conference call.

Wisconsin lost 20-10 to then-No. 11 Iowa on Saturday. Taylor came into the game leading Wisconsin in tackles (43). Bielema says since Taylor is a redshirt freshman, he still has three quality years ahead.

Bielema also said Tuesday that top running back John Clay spent time in a walking boot after the game. Clay has been struggling with a right ankle sprain most of the season and was buckled over early against the Hawkeyes. He returned and ran for 75 yards, but wasn't the same after the injury.
