Wisconsin’s passing attack will get an expected boost heading into its last non-conference game of the year this Saturday.
Ahead of the 2018 opener, UW announced that wide receiver Danny Davis had been suspended for the first two games of the season following an off-field incident earlier in the offseason. Monday, Paul Chryst confirmed that the receiver’s suspension is indeed time-served and Davis will be eligible to play this weekend against BYU.
“The suspension has been served and he’ll be ready to go,” the head coach stated. “I’ve been proud of the way he took it and learned, and I’ve been proud of his response to this point.”
The suspension stemmed from Davis being named in a criminal complaint filed against fellow Badgers wide receiver Quintez Cephus. Cephus, who took an indefinite leave of absence from the team, was charged last month with felony sexual assault of an intoxicated victim and felony assault after very loudly proclaiming his innocence.
In the complaint, it’s alleged that Davis took at least one photo of one of the women involved in the alleged assaults. Davis has not been formally charged in connection to the alleged assault.
Last season, Davis was fourth on the team in receptions (26) and receiving yards (418). He was tied for second with five receiving touchdowns.
