The Air Force Falcons suffered two injuries on Saturday afternoon in their 49-21 win over Idaho State. The less serious injury was to wide receiver Ty MacArthur who took a big hit on Saturday afternoon after he was part of a nasty collision in the second quarter with Idaho State's Donovan Henley.
Falcons head coach Troy Calhoun did not think MacArthur suffered a concussion as he asked him the following question:
"We asked him immediately what was the play call, and he knew what it was," Calhoun said. "We'll see where he is in the next couple days."
Before the injury MacArthur had four catches for 78 yards.
The other injury that was more severe came to starting center Michael Huser. In the second quarter Huser left the game with a knee injury, and now we know that he is out for the season as he tore a pair of ligaments in his left knee.
AFA center Michael Husar tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee and is done for the season. Especially tough bc his dad played at Michigan— Frank Schwab (@GazetteAirForce) September 3, 2012
This is a big blow for Air Force as Husar started eight games for the Falcons last year, and was an anchor on the offensive line. The center has many key duties on the offensive line which include calling out plays, and those skills are even more important in the run-option offense. Husar has to be crushed since the Falcons next game was at Michigan which is where his dad played football at.
The replacement for Husar at center should be Austin Hayes.
