Garrett Rand pressures Nebraska QB Tanner Lee, State Journal photo

Wisconsin Badgers defensive end Garrett Rand (93) pressures Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback Tanner Lee (13) during the second quarter at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb., on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017. 

University of Wisconsin nose tackle Garrett Rand may miss the Badgers' game against Iowa on Saturday.

Per a source, the sophomore tore a ligament in his foot earlier this season but played through the injury for a number of weeks. He did not practice Tuesday.

Rand has seen action in all nine games this season, recording three tackles and breaking up one pass.

Defensive ends Billy Hirschfeld and Conor Sheehy have experience playing nose tackle and could serve as the No. 2 at that position behind Olive Sagapolu if Rand misses time.

Defensive end Isaiahh Loudermilk (left leg) is currently listed as questionable this week and could return Saturday after missing multiple games.
