After a month’s worth of uncertainty, there’s finally a little bit of clarity regarding the status of San Jose State’s top threat in the passing game.
Wide receiver Noel Grigsby confirmed Thursday that he has a torn meniscus in his left knee, which he suffered in practice leading up to the Spartans’ Week 2 loss to Stanford. He underwent surgery in late September because of the injury, which the school had previously declined to detail.
The clarity also came with a bit of bad news as Grigsby will not play again during the regular season. He is, though, holding out hope that he will be healthy enough to play in whatever bowl game for which the 3-3 Spartans qualify.
“I’m trying to do everything I can to possibly come back before the season is over,” the senior said according to the San Jose Mercury News.
If Grigsby were to play in a bowl game, he would not qualify for a medical redshirt.
With 237 career receptions, Grigsby is the school’s all-time leader in that category. Despite missing four games, Grigsby is sixth in receptions (10) and receiving yards (106), and is tied for second in receiving touchdowns with two.
