"I really hate any time a player has to miss time due to an injury, especially a senior like Vince," Badgers coach Paul Chryst said in a release. "Vince has such a passion for football and loves playing the game. ... What you appreciate is that you know he will do everything in his power to get back on the field as soon as possible."
