Wisconsin WR Toon out with foot injury
By Adam Rittenberg
Wisconsin will be without its top receiver today against Indiana.
Senior Nick Toon is out with a sore left foot. He sustained the injury Oct. 1 in Wisconsin's win against Nebraska and is being held out as a precautionary measure. Toon is expected to return next week for Wisconsin's showdown at Michigan State.
Toon's absence shouldn't hurt too much against Indiana, as Wisconsin figures to run the ball a lot today. The concern here is Toon underwent surgery on his foot during the offseason and missed three games last year because of turf toe.
He leads Wisconsin in receptions (25), receiving yards (447) and receiving touchdowns (6). Expect Manasseh Garner to see more action as Wisconsin's No. 2 receiver alongside Jared Abbrederis.
