Report: Wisconsin's Vince Biegel To Miss Two To Four Weeks After Undergoing Foot Surgery

Wisconsin will be missing a key piece on their defense against Michigan.

Wisconsin is set to visit Ann Arbor this weekend and they will be missing a strong contributor on the defensive side of the ball, according to ESPN.

Linebacker Vince Biegel, who has recorded nine tackles, two quarterback hurries and a sack this season, underwent surgery Thursday night to insert a screw into his cracked foot and he will miss Saturday's showdown with Michigan, Biegel's father, Rocky, told Jesse Temple of ESPN.com:

"He's been playing on it for the last couple weeks, and it was bothering him a little bit," Rocky Biegel said. "He had X-rays last night and confirmed it was cracked. He either plays on it, and then if he breaks it, then he's going to be out for eight weeks. Either way, he's got to have surgery on it. So he can keep playing until it breaks or try to go through the season with it and try to fix it. At any time, he could break it all the way through. It was just a crack and they're just putting a screw in it. It's a very, very minor crack."

Biegel's father said that he expects the linebacker to miss two to four weeks.

Wisconsin and Michigan are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
