Colorado QB Jordan Webb out for season with torn ACL
A torn ACL could end Jordan Webb's college career if he's not granted a waiver by the NCAA.
Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb will miss the 2013 season after suffering a torn ACL in practice on Tuesday.
Webb collapsed on the field after making a cut during a non-contact drill.
“This is very sad for Jordan,” Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said. “We all feel for him. He was doing well in practice, competing again for the starting job, and for this to happen and to lose him for the season is just a shame."
Webb earned the starting job at Colorado last August after transferring from Kansas. He started 19 games with the Jayhawks before graduating and moving on to Boulder. He played in 10 games for the Buffaloes last season, throwing for 1,434 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions.
And while it's known that this ACL injury will cost Webb the 2013 season, it could cost him his career as well. This season was Webb's final year of college eligibility, and he will need to be granted a waiver for a sixth year by the NCAA if he wants to return to play in the 2014 season.
With Webb out quarterbacks Nick Hirschman, Connor Wood and Shane Dillon will all compete for the starting job this fall.
