UNLV’s Wolfe breaks foot, college career over
November 21, 2009
LAS VEGAS – UNLV wide receiver Ryan Wolfe broke his left foot while returning punts in practice and will not be able to play in what would have been the final game of his college career.
A Rebels spokesman said Friday that the senior with 283 career receptions and 3,495 yards broke the foot during practice on Wednesday and will need crutches for four to six weeks.
UNLV says Wolfe will have surgery next week and rehabilitate the foot for eight to 12 weeks.
That means he will miss UNLV’s season finale Nov. 28 against San Diego State. The Rebels (4-7, 2-5 Mountain West Conference) have a bye this week.
Wolfe leads the conference this season with 74 receptions and is second in yards with 760. He has a UNLV-record 12 career games with at least 100 receiving yards.
