It feels like there aren't enough fingers and toes to keep track of the number of injuries Wisconsin football is dealing with this spring. To rub salt in the wound, the Badgers learned that converted outside linebacker David Gilbert will miss his senior season due to a recurring foot injury.
Head coach Gary Andersen has been playing it safe with some of his mangled players, and while that's not a bad idea considering it's only April, there is plenty to learn pertaining to new philosophies both on offense and defense.
Whether you're a sixth-year senior like Curt Phillips or a early enrolled freshman like Sojourn Shelton, everyone has something to learn. While it may set the Badgers back a bit at first, injuries have allowed younger players to gain some valuable reps in practice, which could benefit the team down the road.
With just one week to go until the spring game, let's see whose stock is up and whose is down.
