The Colorado St. Rams defense had a good performance by allowing only 10 points in their win over the New Mexico Lobos on Saturday, but in that game the Rams lost their best pass rusher in defensive end Broderick Sargent who tore his ACL:
"I feel really bad for the kid," CSU defensive coordinator Larry Kerr said. "You talk about as hard a worker on our football team, Broderick Sargent is right at the top. He's just a quality kid on and off the field. He's such a great example to all of our players and even to us as coaches the way he goes about his business. He's the most talented pass rusher on our football team."
The injury took place sometime in the first half while an offensive lineman was holding Sargent, so the Rams are going to turn in the video to the league for review. In 2010 Sargent had 37 tackles, 6.5 tackles for a loss and two sacks, so his production will be missed.
