RB D.J. May Likely Out For The Year Due To Injury

Troy Babbitt-US PRESSWIRE

Off season injury forces leading returner rusher to miss 2013.

The Wyoming running game took a unexpected big hit last week. It was reported by Robert Gagliardi that he ran into sophomore running back D.J. May who was in a sling. Apparently May tore his left pectoral muscle in a voluntary off season workout. The injury is expected to take nine months of recovery and force May to miss the entire 2013 season.

As a freshmen May led the Pokes with 369 rushing yards on 77 attempts. His 4.79 yard per carry average was also tops on the team. He also caught six passes for 35 yards. Don't forget the impact May had in the return game as well, he led the team with nine kickoff returns and posted a 20.89 yard average.

The running game is a question mark this year as the team struggled last year with just a 3.38 average per carry in 2012. The same group returns this year except now May is gone. There is at least the addition of freshmen Omar Stover and Joshua Tapscott. Still this is an incredibly young group with the exception of senior Brandon Miller who missed all of spring practice with an off season injury. He is now healthy and working out with the team.

A redshirt year will likely be a benefit to May in his overall growth and development. Unfortunately it will be a big loss to Pokes offense this year.
