Northwestern will be without one of its starting cornerbacks for the rest of the season.

Coach Pat Fitzgerald announced on Monday that Daniel Jones is done for the year after suffering an injury to his left knee on Saturday night. The injury occurred late in the first half while Jones was committing pass interference in the end zone.

He needed to be carted off the field.

Jones started the final seven games of the season for Northwestern in 2012, picking up 33 tackles and defending four passes. He was replaced by Dwight White on Saturday night, and White is likely to replace Jones against Syracuse on Saturday.

Jones isn't the only injury the Wildcats are dealing with either. Both quarterback Kain Colter and running back Venric Mark are banged up as well. Colter suffered a concussion against Cal and Mark was dealing with a leg injury before the game started.

There's no word on whether or not either will play this weekend.
