MADISON, Wis. (AP) -Wisconsin tight end Travis Beckum broke his left leg in Saturday's 27-17 win against Illinois and is out for the season.
Beckum had surgery on his fibula Saturday night after injuring it in the third quarter.
Beckum decided to return for his senior season, forgoing the NFL draft as one of the nation's top pass-catching tight ends to pursue a Big Ten title.
But he sustained a hamstring injury that kept him out of the first two games and most of a third to start the year, and Wisconsin (4-4, 1-4 Big Ten) lost four in a row after rising as high as ninth in the poll.
Beckum ended his Wisconsin career with 159 receptions for 2,149 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was third in Wisconsin history in both receptions and yards receiving.
