Wisconsin Badgers’ senior safety Michael Caputo suffered a concussion in his team’s loss to Alabama yesterday, and it was bad enough that he legitimately didn’t know where he was.
After taking a knee to the helmet on a tackle early in the first quarter, Caputo got up on wobbly legs and went to the wrong huddle, spurring referees to stop the game and make sure he got proper medical attention.
This could be a tough blow to Wisconsin’s secondary, as Caputo was coming off a career year in 2014. In 14 games, he had 106 tackles, an interception, six passes defended and two forced fumbles to go with four recoveries. If his concussion keeps him out for an extended period of time, the beginning of coach Paul Chryst’s tenure in Madison could very well get off to a rocky start.
Wisconsin lost to Alabama 35-17 last night and gets a bit of a breather next week, when MAC’s Miami (Ohio) Redhawks visit Madison on the 12th.
