Colorado QB Jordan Webb to miss 2013 season
The injury occurred during practice Tuesday.
“This is very sad for Jordan,” new head coach Mike MacIntyre said in a statement. “We all feel for him. He was doing well in practice, competing again for the starting job, and for this to happen and to lose him for the season is just a shame.”
Though his position as starter was far from certain, the loss of Webb is a blow to the Buffaloes nonetheless.
Last season, Webb threw for 1,434 yards with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions.
“It’s another obstacle that I have to overcome,” Webb said. “I’ve rebounded from adversity before so this is just another challenge I have to face.”
Webb began his college career at Kansas and redshirted in 2009. He will apply for a sixth year of eligibility.
