News has broken tonight from Coach Sark that Deontae Cooper has torn his ACL, once again, and will miss this year. At this point, I expect him to retire. This is his third knee injury in as many years for the young man. He came into U-Dub with all the promise in the world but it hasn’t worked out for him due to injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with him, as I’m sure this is a struggle for him.
As for what this means to the Huskies, not much. Anyone expecting Cooper to make a significant impact this year was being unreasonable. More than anything, this is just heartbreaking news. Get well soon, Deontae!
