University of Wisconsin inside linebacker Jack Cichy will miss the 2017 season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament, UW announced Thursday.
Chris Orr and Ryan Connelly will compete to replace Cichy in the Badgers' starting lineup.
UW could apply for a Medical Hardship Wavier for Cichy to regain a year of eligibility, but it likely wouldn't be granted.
If Cichy is not granted a medical hardship wavier, his college career would be over after this season.
Cichy missed the second half of last season after tearing his pectoral muscle at Iowa.
