Louisville RB Colin Wilson faces long recovery after tearing ACL

On Monday, the Louisville Cardinals already ruled out freshman running back Colin Wilson for the rest of the season. Tuesday, his mother, Keesha Tyler, revealed Wilson’s season ending injury is a torn ACL according to The Courier Journal.

Wilson sustained his knee injury late in a game against Murray State during Week 4 on Sept. 30. He needed a cart in order to leave the field.

This is the second time Wilson has sustained this injury. He tore his left ACL while playing in high school, so he is familiar with the long recovery he will need to go through in order to get back on the field. Wilson tore his right ACL this year.

Tyler told The Courier-Journal that her son will undergo surgery on Oct. 18.

Wilson was a 4-star recruit from Florida and was ranked the Cardinals’ second-highest rated prospect in the 2017 class. He finishes his freshman season with 69 yards on 6 carries.
