TCU Defensive End Devonte Fields To Have Foot Surgery; Out For The Remainder Of The 2013 Season

As reported by numerous media sources, Fields will have surgery on his right foot and will miss the rest of the season. He will seek a medical redshirt to protect this year of his eligibility.


The news, from ESPN:

Fields, the Associated Press' reigning Big 12 defensive player of the year, will seek a medical redshirt. If he gets one, Fields would still have three years of eligibility remaining.

Fields suffered the foot injury in TCU's third game, a meeting at Texas Tech. He tried to return last weekend at Oklahoma, but was ineffective.

GOOD: Will allow us to grow up other weapons and luckily Lathan/others are starting to do that already.

BAD: You just lost an amazing talent at DE for the rest of the year.

The defense was great without him, but man... Losing a weapon like this will challenge the already shaky depth at defensive end, no bueno.
