Wisconsin QB Budmayr out with elbow problem


MADISON, Wisc. (AP) -- Backup quarterback Jon Budmayr will be out indefinitely with an elbow problem, putting Joe Brennan behind transfer Russell Wilson on the depth chart.

The Badgers' season opener is Sept. 1 against Nevada-Las Vegas at Camp Randall Stadium.

Budmayr saw two specialists last week. The sophomore entered preseason camp as the No. 1 quarterback ahead of senior Russell Wilson, but was sidelined after experiencing swelling in his right elbow after practice on Aug. 9.

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says Budmayr irritated a nerve that caused numbness in his throwing hand.
