UPDATE: JoJo Dickson Injury

25 10 2010

In picking up their first conference victory of the season Saturday, the Idaho football paid a steep price.

Starting middle linebacker JoJo Dickson suffered a broken leg in the third quarter, after New Mexico State runningback Kenny Turner blindsided the senior at the end of a play.

The hit ended Dickson’s season and likely his college career.

Here’s a look at the hit.

Being the leader that Dickson is, many Idaho players reacted emotionally following the hit.  As you can see in the video, it got to the point where head coach Robb Akey had to gather his football team to reminded them what they were playing for  – a WAC win, not retaliation.

Today, coach Akey gave an update on JoJo’s status, stating the surgery went well.

After his weekly press conference was over, coach Akey said that it’s likely to late in the season for Dickson to be granted a medical redshirt, but added that would not prevent him from trying.

Either way, Idaho players and coaches will just have to hope that playing for JoJo will match his production on the field.
