CB Derrick Tindal suffers scary injury during Badgers spring practice

Perhaps the best bit of news to date in the Wisconsin Badgers’ spring camp has been a lack of news about major injuries happening. That streak could have ended on Sunday, as sophomore cornerback Derrick Tindal appeared to suffer a severe upper body injury. Severe enough to have to be transported via ambulance to the […]
