Colorado QB Jordan Webb to miss 2013 season

[dropcap]J[/dropcap]ordan Webb, Colorado’s starting quarterback last season, will miss the 2013 season with a torn ACL.

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.
