Wolf is the second Badgers quarterback to reportedly test positive for COVID-19.
Wisconsin might be turning to its fourth-string quarterback this week after Chase Wolf also tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The Journal Sentinel reports Wolf, the Badgers’ third-string QB, missed Monday’s practice. News of his test comes after the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and Wisconsin State Journal reported that starter Graham Mertz tested positive over the weekend.
Both papers reported that Mertz would be undergoing a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to determine if the first result was a false positive. Wolf will also take a PCR test to confirm his first result. If confirmed, the players will sit out at least 21 days, per Big Ten protocol, and Wisconsin will turn to redshirt junior Danny Vanden Boom to face Nebraska on Saturday.
The Badgers are already missing starting quarterback Jack Coan, who is out indefinitely after undergoing foot surgery on Oct. 6.
