Wisconsin LB Jack Cichy to miss 2017 season with torn ACL

Wisconsin football revealed some brutal news Thursday morning, as Paul Chryst announced linebacker Jack Cichy will miss the 2017 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Cichy suffered the injury during practice on Tuesday and will undergo surgery on Friday. Cichy, a former walk-on, missed the second half of the 2016 season with a torn pectoral.

“You hate it for Jack,” Chryst said in Wisconsin’s release. “You only get so many chances to play this game and you never want to see a guy miss any of those opportunities. He’s one of the leaders of our team and I know he’ll be a big part of what we do moving forward this season.”
