Fozzy Whittaker Injury: Texas RB Out For The Season With Torn Knee Ligaments

It's been a bit of a rough week and a rough season for the Texas Longhorns. Following their 17-5 loss to the Missouri Tigers, Texas football sits at 3-3 in the Big 12 and is in need of a fantastic run to get to a January bowl. As if a schedule of Kansas State, at Texas A&M and at Baylor wasn't a tough enough road, they're going to have to navigate it without their leader in yards from scrimmage and touchdowns. News came out on Sunday that running back Fozzy Whittaker will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL and MCL.

The Longhorns got a preview of what life will be like without Whittaker this week, as he went down early in the first quarter. Without their best offensive weapon, Texas couldn't manage to score a touchdown. Whittaker had overcome injuries early in his career to become a major contributor to the Longhorns this season, but sadly, his terrible luck has reared its ugly head once again.

Fozzy Whittaker Injury: Texas Back's Leg 'Buckles,' Possible Knee Problem

Texas has been running over its opponents of late, and running back "Fozzy" Foswhitt Whittaker has been an integral part of that surge. Unfortunately for the Longhorns, Whittaker has sustained a leg injury early in Texas' Week 11 game against Missouri this Saturday.

The severity of the injury is unclear, but multiple sources on Twitter indicate that it was Whittaker's right knee that was hurt. CBS Sports' Tom Fornelli notes that Whittaker is being examined on the sidelines.

Whittaker had four carries for 15 yards against Missouri before going down. The senior had 151 yards over the last two weeks in Texas' blowout wins over Kansas and Texas Tech, and had compiled a career-high 371 yards in the 2011 season.
