Villanova Football: John Robertson injury rules him out for season

New, comments

On Monday's CAA press conference with the media, Villanova Football head coach Andy Talley announced that quarterback John Robertson is out for the season with a short, "no, he is not able to come back" reply on his star's status for the season.

Talley added that Robertson visited renowned surgeon James Andrews in Florida for a second opinion and will now shut down his hopes for a return this season. The focus is that it would "be a good six-month rehab to get him ready for pro football."

The senior quarterback, who won the 2014 Walter Payton Award given to the best player in FCS football, sustained a PCL injury in his right knee during the Wildcats' 8-21 victory over Delaware on September 19th.

In Villanova's three games this season, Robertson has accounted for 660 total yards, six touchdowns, and one interception. It's a terribly sad ending for one of the greatest players in Villanova history - but hopefully he'll be able to get healthy in time for a real shot at the NFL.
