Wisconsin's Hill to miss spring drills

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin running back P.J. Hill, the Rivals.com Freshman of the Year in 2006, has had shoulder surgery and will not participate in spring football drills in March and April, the school announced on Thursday.

Tight end Andy Crooks is scheduled to have shoulder surgery on Friday and also is expected to miss spring drills.

"Both P.J. and Andy are having surgery to correct injuries they sustained during the 2007 season," Badgers coach Bret Bielema said in a statement. "They will miss spring ball, but will participate on a limited basis in summer conditioning and are expected to be 100 percent by the time fall camp opens."

Hill, who had surgery Wednesday, was the 2006 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and led the conference with 1,569 yards rushing but appeared to wear down as the season progressed.

Crooks started every game for the Badgers in 2006, catching 19 passes for 206 yards and four touchdowns.

Wisconsin begins spring practice March 13.
