As if losing 37-36 in the final seconds to Syracuse on Saturday wasn’t bad enough for South Florida, the Bulls also lost the team’s leading rusher in the process.
Skip Holtz confirmed Sunday that Lindsey Lamar will not return this year with a clavicle injury he sustained during the loss. According to reports, Lamar had trouble breathing and had to be taken to the hospital where he underwent a nonsurgical procedure to set the collarbone back in place.
“I hate it. He’s really been coming along, been developing every week,” said Holtz, “It’ll be a blow to us offensively, with the productivity he’s had in the last two weeks, rushing for (255) yards. We’re definitely going to miss that production, and we’re going to have to make it up.”
Lamar, a senior, finishes the season with 475 yards rushing and three touchdowns on the ground. His career at USF is likely over too.
