West Virginia safety Karl Joseph out for year with knee injury


The West Virginia Mountaineers are coming off of a very disappointing loss at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners last week and are hoping to get back to their winning ways this week against the No. 21 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Now, things may be more difficult than before.

According to a report from Keenan Cummings, the Mountaineers will have to play the remainder of the 2015 season without safety Karl Joseph who is done for the year with a knee injury.

Joseph was a huge part of the West Virginia defense and losing him is going to hurt the Mountaineers in a big way. Many believe Joseph was playing as well as any other defensive back in the nation.

Joseph was also one of the team’s most active leaders on the field.

Through the opening month of the season, Joseph recorded 20 tackles, five interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Obviously the interception number jumps out and that playmaking ability in the secondary is going to be nearly impossible to replace. West Virginia’s defense already needed help and losing Joseph will just make them more vulnerable against the aerial attack.
