(WNFL)- In a bizarre turn of events, Wisconsin football coach Gary Andersen said late yesterday that quarterback Joel Stave is not injured. That was about six hours after he had the UW issue a statement that Stave was out indefinitely due to persistent shoulder problems. Andersen announced the change, and then Stave added more. He told reporters that everything's fine structurally with the right throwing shoulder he injured in January's Capital One Bowl. And he's not experiencing the pain he had this past spring. As Stave put it, "My arm is just not working the way I'd like it to ... I don't know what it is ... I just haven't thrown the ball the way I'd like to ... I'm working through it." Stave insists he has not lost confidence after Andersen chose Tanner McEvoy as the Badgers' starting quarterback in their loss against LSU last Saturday. McEvoy will remain the starter, with Bart Houston as the main backup. Andersen said "injured is probably a bad word" he decided to use. He said Stave needed to get himself ready to practice properly, before getting into a game. And the coach said he hopes it's soon. The 0-1 Badgers host Western Illinois on Saturday.
