Wyoming sophomore running back D.J. May could miss the 2013 season after an injury suffered during voluntary workouts.

mayAccording to a WyoSports.net report, May tore his left pectoral muscle a couple weeks ago. He expects the recovery to take nine months.

May was the Cowboys’ leading rusher last season with 374 yards on 77 carries (4.9 yards per carry) and one rushing touchdown. He caught six passes for 35 yards.

If May redshirts, he would return a redshirt sophomore in 2014.

Fortunately for Wyoming, the team is deep at running back. Senior Brandon Miller rushed for 352 yards in 2012 while sophomore Shaun Wick gained 350 yards and scored four touchdowns.

True freshman Omar Stover, a January enrollee, ended spring No. 2 on the depth chart behind Miller.
