The Colorado St. Rams did get a convincing win over the Northern Colorado Bears on Saturday 33-14, but it came with a price due to players getting injured. The biggest name to suffer an injury is star linebacker Mychal Sisson who broke his right ankle on punt return coverage. Sisson was running down field to block on of the Northern Colorado players that was nearing the returner and when Sisson went to block him, Sisson fell to the ground on his right leg.
Sisosn was carted off the field on a cart with a cast on his right leg and eventually take to a hospital where the discovered the broken ankle and it is possible that he could be out for the season. This is a huge blow since Sisson was the teams leading tackler in 2008 and 2009.
The replacements look to be redshirt freshman Max Morgan and true freshman Aaron Davis as as they filled in on Saturday.
This is the second major injury to the Ram defense in the young 2011 season. The other is defensive end Broderick Sargent who the Rams lost to a torn ACL in their season opening win against the New Mexico Lobos.
