Badgers lose C Konz for 2-4 weeks

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin center Peter Konz will be out two to four weeks with a dislocated left ankle.

Coach Bret Bielema said Monday that Konz was injured in the fourth quarter of the Badgers’ 42-13 win at Minnesota on Saturday. He will be replaced by sophomore Ryan Gro when No. 15 Wisconsin (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten) plays its final road game of the season Saturday at Illinois (6-4, 2-4).

Wide receiver Jared Abbrederis is expected to practice later this week in preparation for the Illini. The sophomore suffered a left shoulder injury in the first half against the Gophers.
