MADISON, Wis. (AP) Joel Stave will get a late start in spring ball to hold off the competition for the starting quarterback job at Wisconsin.
The incumbent will be limited through the early part of camp after hurting his right shoulder in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day. It's just a precaution, coach Gary Andersen said Wednesday.
"We just don't want him throwing a few balls down the field and get too competitive," Andersen said after a first practice that lasted about two hours. "If we were going to play tomorrow, he would play."
