Utah State loses leading tackler Woodward to injury
Field Level Mediaon
Utah State leading tackler David Woodward is out for the season with an undisclosed injury.
The junior linebacker registered 93 tackles and two sacks and also forced four fumbles in the Aggies' first seven games before sitting out Saturday's 42-14 loss to BYU.
"It's the hardest for him, trust me, it's the hardest for the kid," coach Gary Andersen told the Salt Lake Tribune. "He'll go through it, but it's a devastating blow for a young man to be in that spot."
Woodward tallied a career-high 24 tackles in the Aug. 30 season opener at Wake Forest, and returned a fumble 8 yards for a touchdown to cap a Sept. 8 victory against Colorado State.
