Chicago Hubbard blue chip recruit Reggie Cribbs suffered through a very difficult stress fracture injury last season. He has an outstanding senior year, but promised he could have been better if he was 100 percent.
The Wisconsin coaching staff recognized that when Cribbs reported to Madison earlier this summer, he was still not 100 percent. As a result, Cribbs had surgery two weeks ago. He is expected to join the team sometime after school starts in early September.
"He played with it last year," Coach Barry Alvarez said. "It wasn't getting any better, and we just felt we needed to do something."
Alvarez said the surgery was successful, and he expects Cribbs to begin running as part of his rehab in the near future.
