What appears to be an inordinate string of ACL injuries continues across college football, with San Jose State the latest program impacted by a serious knee injury.
In what he described as “just a freak thing,” head coach Rod Caragher confirmed that Moses Saucedo suffered a torn ACL during practice this past Monday. As a result, the linebacker will miss the entire 2014 season.
“He went to tackle and his knee got torqued the wrong way,” Caragher said.
Saucedo played in 12 games last season, starting four of those contests. Following spring practice and the first couple of weeks of summer camp — and thanks to the injuries incurred by Jared Leaf in an apartment fire — the redshirt junior was being looked at as a starter.
“It’s a tough deal because he was having a good fall camp and competing for a potential starting spot,” said the coach.
