One of the best young wide receivers in the country, Jaime Wilson, suffered a broken ankle during summer camp and has yet to see the field this season.
Western Michigan’s hope was that Wilson would return at some point in 2013. Unfortunately, that hope has been officially dashed.
It was confirmed Tuesday that, because of the ankle break and a rehab that’s not gone as hoped, Wilson will be sidelined for the entirety of the 2013 season. The sophomore will take a medical redshirt for this season and retain three years of eligibility.
As to where Wilson is in the recovery process, mlive.com writes that “Wilson had been using a rolling knee walker until recently when he started making his way around practice in just a walking boot.”
As a true freshman in 2012, Wilson led the team in receptions (67), receiving yards (792) and receiving touchdowns (six). He was the first true freshman in the program’s history to lead the team in those categories.
Following the season, he was named as the MAC’s Freshman of the Year.
