Ohio loses starting TE for entire 2015 season

The Ohio Bobcats took a big blow to their receiving corps during practice last week. The team lost starting tight end Troy Mangen to an apparent season-ending knee injury.

According to College Football Talk, Mangen suffered the injury in a camp practice late last week. Head coach Frank Solich talked about and confirmed that the injury is going to sideline him for the season.

“It appears to be a season-ending injury,” Solich said.

The junior tight end has started fourteen games the past two seasons, including ten in 2014. He caught nineteen passes for 147 yards and was slated to start most of the team’s games this season and make a huge impact.

The Bobcats finished the 2014 season second in the MAC East division. Under Solich, the team has played in three MAC Championship games and are expected to compete for another division crown this season.

The Bobcats open the 2015 season on September 3 when they play on the road against the Idaho Vandals.
