College Football injury update

By | September 11, 2019

College football injury update … In addition to the season-ending knee injury suffered by rising Stanford LT Walker Little yesterday, there were several other injuries of note in college football last weekend. North Carolina has confirmed, for example, that senior CB/S Patrice Rene will miss the rest of the year after tearing an ACL in Saturday’s win over Miami. Rene is considered to be a late round or free agent type prospect. In fact, his injury could have a bigger impact on next year’s CFL draft as Rene, a 6-2, 210-pound native of Ottawa, was rated the #3 prospect for the 2020 Canadian league draft on a recent early season watch list. Rene has yet to redshirt so could return to school for another year next fall. Meanwhile, Mississippi junior ILB MoMo Sanogo, one of the top prospects at the position for either the 2020 or 2021 drafts, had surgery yesterday to repair a broken ankle that he suffered in Saturday’s win over Arkansas. Team doctors estimate that Sanogo will be out about 10 weeks which puts him on the sidelines pretty much until the end of November, about the same time that the Rebels regular season winds up. And while it won’t affect the 2020 draft, Texas A&M has indicated that true sophomore RB Jashaun Corbin, arguably the top true soph runner in the country, will be out for the season after incurring a hamstring injury in Saturday’s loss to Clemson.
