Jesse Temple ESPN Staff Writer 

Wisconsin offensive lineman Dan Voltz has been forced to retire due to injuries, Badgers coach Paul Chryst announced Tuesday. Voltz was coming back from a torn ACL and was expected to start at left guard. He had 27 starts in his career and was considered one of the top linemen in the Big Ten. It's a huge blow to Wisconsin's young line less than two weeks before the opener against LSU. The Badgers' projected line starters now have a combined 34 starts.
