An off-field incident will reportedly sideline Corey Clement for what s expected to be his final regular season game in a Wisconsin uniform. Earlier this week, the running back was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct following an incident earlier this month. The initial details had Clement attempting to break up a fight between the security guard at his off-campus residence and a group of individuals, which proved to be a false narrative as Clement was found to have thrown the first punch. Because of the charges, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting, Clement will not travel with his teammates for Saturday s game against Minnesota. There s no word on his status for the Badgers bowl game.
This has essentially been a lost season for Clement, who came into the the year as one of a handful of Heisman favorites. The junior struggled in the season-opening loss to Alabama because of an injury that was later determined to be a sports hernia. He missed the next seven games, came back for one game late last month (115 yards, three touchdowns in win over Rutgers), but then aggravated the injury and missed the Nov. 7 Maryland game as well. He played in last weekend s loss to Northwestern, but was held to just 24 yards on 10 carries. For the season, Clement has rushed for 155 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries, one year after 949 yards and nine touchdowns as Heisman runner-up Melvin Gordon s primary backup.
