Chris Collinsworth announced last week that he will have career-ending ankle surgery. I can't say I'm surprised--this guy has had more injuries and surgeries than any other player I've heard of in a loooong time--but it's still very sad. It's especially hard since I know he was looking forward to playing at least one more year with his brother when Kyle returns from his mission in 2013.
Chris only got to play in a handful of games during the three years he's been on the BYU basketball roster. Two of those seasons, he was granted medical redshirts, so technically he could have continued to play for another 3 years, but obviously his knees, ankles, and other injured body parts just can't handle it. It's always so sad when a promising athlete has to cut a career short because of injuries, especially when it's a member of my all-time favorite sports team.You will be missed, Chris. I wish you the best in your future.
