Northern Illinois QB Anthony Maddie’s college career ends with injury

Northern Illinois quarterback Anthony Maddie has watched his collegiate career come to an end.

On Monday, Huskies head coach Rod Carey told the Daily Chronicle that the starting quarterback suffered a hairline fracture in his left leg during the team’s win over Bowling Green earlier this month.

As a result, the senior’s season is over.

“Our hearts are broken for Anthony to see his career end this way,” Carey said. “He came in and did a great job of leading this team in MAC play, and we feel terrible for him and his family. He was playing some of the best football of his career. It’s hard when a senior loses games in his final season.”

Maddie threw for  for 1,213 yards and eight touchdowns in his final year.

Northern Illinois returns to action on Wednesday night with a road trip to Ypsilanti, Michigan for a meeting with the Eastern Michigan Eagles. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
