Badgers DB done for the year after foot surgery

Wisconsin cornerback Devin Smith‘s injury status has gone from “indefinite” to “definite” — and not in a good way for Bucky fans.

During a Big Ten teleconference earlier today, coach Bret Bielema said that Smith underwent foot surgery on Monday following an injury he suffered in Wisconsin’s 35-0 win over Oregon State and will miss the remainder of the 2011 season.

Technically, Smith’s recovery time is expected to be four-to-six weeks, but since Smith, a senior, has a redshirt to burn, he will use it and come back 2012.

“As we all know, the world works in mysterious ways,” Bielema said. “So, fortunately for us, Devin is a kid that played right away as a freshman. So, we’ll be able to file the appropriate paperwork and he’ll be able to get a redshirt out of this season and be able to join us again next year for a second senior season.”

    Feel for the kid but at least he has one more year in his pocket, would have been devasting if not. Looks like Cromartie is now the next up, sure looked good last Saturday.
