CSU football coach Sonny Lubick confirmed after Saturday’s 34-28 loss to Cal that senior tight end Kory Sperry is out for the season with a left knee injury.
Sperry injured his knee in the second quarter while making a leaping catch. The senior tight end then walked to the locker room on his own power only to return to the sideline in street clothes during the second half.
The loss of Sperry comes a little more than a year after running back Kyle Bell injured his knee and lost all of last season.
Sperry had two catches for 16 yards before the injury knocked him out of the game.
The senior is considered the Rams’ best pro prospect and showed why in the team’s season opener to CU-Boulder last week by catching three touchdowns in an overtime loss.
