Quigley out for season


Kansas University football running back Angus Quigley is out for the season after suffering an injury coach Mark Mangino deemed "unusual."

Quigley, expected to be Jon Cornish's backup, suffered the injury recently and was not at practice Friday. His loss means that Jake Sharp likely will be the No. 2 tailback, with fullback Brandon McAnderson getting added ball-carrying duties, as well.

Nobody likes to hear about an injury like this, but there is a bright side. Quigley will get this year of eligability back with a medical redshirt, and he is young enough that he will have plenty of playing time for KU before it's all said and done.

As for the effect on the team, luckily the recruiting has been good enough lately that we've got plenty of talent chomping at the bit to get on the field. Losing Angus just means that we will get a good chance to showcase Sharp. If we were going to burn his redshirt year anyway, we might as well get him some carries instead of only using him for special teams.

Best of luck Angus, can't wait to see you out there next year.
