When asked why Hornibrook was not on the Thursday injury report last week, Chryst simply responded, “Yeah, I just didn’t want to.”
With Hornibrook inactive against Northwestern last Saturday, Coan went 20-of-31 for 158 yards and one touchdown as the Badgers fell to the Wildcats 31–17.
Both Sagapolu and Van Lanen were injured against Northwestern, thinning the depth on both the offensive and defensive lines. True freshman Bryson Williams replaced Sagapolu as the first-team nose tackle in Monday’s depth chart. Redshirt freshman Logan Bruss is now the No. 2 left tackle behind Jon Dietzen as well as the No. 2 right tackle.
