MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin junior defensive lineman Justin Ostrowski has decided to end his career after battling injuries to his right knee during the last two seasons.
Badgers coach Bret Bielema issued a statement saying Ostrowski decided it would best if he stopped playing, based on advice of his doctors.
The coach says Ostrowski will remain on scholarship and has been invited to remain as much a part of the program as he can.
The Portage native saw action in a total of 18 games and made 11 tackles, including one sack.
He injured his knee during preseason drills before the 2005 season and returned to play in five games late in the season.
Injuries persisted last year, as he played in only the first two games.
