The hits just keep coming to Rutgers this season as the team announced that senior defensive tackle Darius Hamilton will miss the remainder of the 2015 season, according to NBCSports.com.
Hamilton, a former five-star recruit, was ruled out after an unspecified lower body injury that will keep him out for the remainder of his eligibility.
A team captain for the Scarlet Knights, Hamilton was an all-Big Ten player in 2014 and team defensive MVP, appeared in his first game this season in last weekend’s road loss at Penn State.
Hamilton had 11.5 tackles-for-loss and six sacks last season, and his career ends with 110 total tackles in 39 games with 24.5 tackles-for-loss and 10.5 sacks.
As Rutgers gets set to face Kansas at home this week, they will have their work cut out for them without their leader in Hamilton and their head coach Kyle Flood. Flood will be serving the second game of his three-game suspension by the university.
