The Wisconsin football program will be without starting wide receiver Danny Davis for the first two games of the 2018 season. Davis will miss the season-opener against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and a Week 2 meeting with the New Mexico Lobos. Both games will be at home for the Badgers.
“Based on the information I have available to me at this time, I have decided to suspend Danny Davis for the first two games of the season,” head coach Paul Chryst said in a statement. “Should further information become available that warrants a reevaluation of the length of the suspension, I will assess that information. We have a high standard of conduct within our football program and we cannot accept behavior that is not consistent with that standard.”
Last season, Davis recorded 26 catches for 418 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
Davis is suspended following a criminal complaint filed against teammate and fellow wide receiver Quintez Cephus, who was charged with felony sexual assault and felony assault to start the week. Davis allegedly appeared in a photo with one of the women who was involved in the assaults.
Kickoff between the No. 4 Badgers and Hilltoppers at Camp Randall Stadium is set for 9:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
