Rob Wheelwright knows he has to be "the guy" for Wisconsin's offense in 2016

Knowing his health is paramount to Wisconsin's success, Rob Wheelwright is hoping for big things in his final season. Hear from him and get the latest from Wisconsin's fall camp.

MADISON – Rob Wheelwright was fulfilling media obligations during Sunday’s Wisconsin media day when head coach Paul Chryst issued a subtle challenge: the Badgers need Wheelwright on the field.

“One thing he’s got to try to do to be healthy,” Chryst said. “I don’t think he’s ever gone through a spring or fall camp (without injury).”

The aches, pains, pulls and tweaks weren’t a big deal earlier in Wheelwright’s career when he was buried on the depth chart, but the Badgers can’t afford losing their rangy senior receiver when he’s being looked at to be the team’s No.1 receiver and main deep threat for 2016.
