Texas State recently found out some bad news about sophomore linebacker David Mayo. He’ll be done for the season with injured cartilage in his left knee.
Mayo started every game at MIKE linebacker for the Bobcats in 2012, registering 41 tackles (22 solo).
“It’s what happens, but fortunately it was just cartilage with David,” Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione said. “He’ll be back for spring practice, which is good.”
The Bobcats moved senior Joplo Bartu back to linebacker to fill the void. Bartu, who played linebacker his first three years at Texas State, switched to defensive end before the season began.
