Wisconsin sophomore safety Scott Nelson said he will miss the rest of the season, stemming from a season-opening leg injury he suffered against South Florida on Aug. 30.

Nelson suffered an injury in the third quarter of the opener and missed Saturday’s game against Central Michigan.

“While I am disappointed to receive the news that my season is over because of an injury, I will not be deterred,” Nelson wrote on Twitter. “My plan is to be back on the field and better than ever when we kick off in 2020.”

Nelson had 41 tackles and one interception in nine games last season. He had four tackles versus South Florida before being hurt.

The Badgers have a bye this week before hosting Michigan on Sept. 21.
