Unfortunately for both the player and the program, Wyoming’s running game has taken a rather significant hit. Reportedly.
First reported by Robert Gagliardi of wyosports.net, D.J. May suffered a torn pectoral muscle a couple of weeks ago during voluntary summer workouts. The recovery time for the injury is nine months, the running back said, meaning May will very likely miss the entire 2013 season.
Wyoming has thus far declined to comment on May’s status for the 2013 season.
As a true freshman last season, May led the Cowboys with 369 yards. If the injury is of the season-ending variety, May will take a medical redshirt and enter the 2014 season as a third-year sophomore.
