Sports Headlines: 

>>Redshirt Freshman Graham Mertz Working With Badgers First-Team Offense

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin Badgers head football coach Paul Chryst says his starting quarterback will soon be evaluated by a foot specialist.  Senior Jack Coan suffered an injury Saturday during a non-contact drill.  Chryst won’t confirm that Coan is going to have surgery and he says he doesn’t know how long Coan will be out.  Redshirt freshman Graham Mertz has been working with the first-team offense after serving as Coan’s backup last season.  Sophomore Chase Wolf and junior Danny Vanden Boom could also take snaps.  Coan was entering his second season as the Badgers’ starter at quarterback after leading his team to a Big Ten West Division title and a Rose Bowl appearance.

>>Brewers GM Stearns Says Team Might Cut Payroll For 2021

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Uncertain financial times mean the Milwaukee Brewers might have to cut their payroll for the 2021 season.  General manager David Stearns points to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Brewers had a payroll of a team record 132 million dollars for the 2019 season.  About 40 million was spent on players’ salaries in the just-completed season.  That would equal about 110 million over a full, 162-game season.  Stearns says it isn’t clear yet if the Brewers can maintain that level next year.

>>Bucks George Hill Honored For Community Work

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Veteran Milwaukee Bucks guard George Hill has been named a winner of the NBA Cares Community Assist Award.  Hill says the award is something he has always wanted to win, even more than a 3-point contest, a most-improved – “or, even, sometimes a championship.”  He says knowing he has impacted a whole community is bigger than a championship for him.  Hill was among the most active Bucks players as the team and the league acknowledged the battle for racial equality just as the season was resuming in the “bubble” in Orlando.  Four other NBA players were also named:  Harrison Barnes of the Kings, Jaylen Brown of the Celtics, Chris Paul of the Thunder, and Dwight Powell of the Mavericks.
