Things just happened at the worst time for the Indiana Hoosiers after quarterback Tre Roberson appeared to have broken his right ankle or leg in the first half in a game versus the UMass Minutemen.
Roberson was lighting up the UMass defense, starting off the first quarter with a 50-yard rush to the end zone. He would come back again for a 39-yard rushing touchdown minutes later to put IU up 14-6. Soon enough, it was 21-6 after he threw a five-yard touchdown pass to running back Shane Wynn.
It was Roberson’s day until the injury came. Looking at the replay, which can’t be provided at the moment, it looks really bad. Roberson would had to be taken out of the game on a stretcher.
Roberson was looking to have a solid sophomore season. He was 6-of-11 for 98 yards with a touchdown and an interception along with 105 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the game.
Here’s hoping to a quick recovery, although it’s likely we won’t be seeing him until 2013. We’ll see how backup Cameron Hoffman does in his absence.
