Wisconsin LB Cichy tears ACL, out for season

Senior injured Tuesday in practice

Wisconsin senior linebacker Jack Cichy will miss the upcoming season after tearing his ACL in practice, the team announced Thursday.

Cichy, who sustained the injury on Tuesday, was named All-Big Ten honorable mention after recording 60 tackles and 1.5 sacks last season. He missed seven games in 2016 after tearing a pectoral muscle.

"You hate it for Jack," coach Paul Chryst said in a statement Thursday. "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."

Cichy was slated to be named a captain for the Badgers this season.
