Corey Clement will not travel with Wisconsin for game vs. Minnesota
Wisconsin tailback Corey Clement will not travel with the Badgers for the team's regular season finale against the Minnesota Gophers on Saturday, according to Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Earlier this week Clement was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct for his role in an off-campus fight.
The incident occurred Nov. 8 and left Clement with a cut to his hand. Madison police said three others were also cited in the altercation, which involved a large group of people and Clement allegedly using “explicit and sexually derogatory” language toward a woman in an elevator. Their argument continued after the group exited, and video reportedly shows Clement punching one of the men in the group, igniting a fracas.
The police determined that Clement threw the first punch in the fight.
Clement has missed significant time with a sports hernia injury this season and has run for 155 yards and four touchdowns. He returned to the field against Northwestern last week.
Clement said Tuesday that he was pondering a leap to the NFL, and that he would return to Wisconsin if his draft stock was third round or worse.
