UC WR Hazleton Out for Season

Posted by Brian Giesenschlag

Cincinnati's first loss under new head coach Butch Jones also featured the Cats first major injury of the season.  Senior transfer Vidal Hazleton was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee Monday and will miss the rest of the season.

A receiver, Hazleton transferred to UC from Southern Cal and after sitting out last season was making his first start for the Bearcats at Fresno State when he was injured on a kickoff return.  He made six catches in the game for 68 yards before he went down.

Marcus Barnett will likely take Hazleton's place at receiver with DJ Woods taking over as the number one return man.  The Cats host Indiana State Saturday at noon at Nippert Stadium.
