Indiana main receiver Cam Camper will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his knee.
Hoosiers coach Tom Allen said the injury occurred in a loss to Rutgers on Oct. 22. Indiana had a bye last weekend.
“He’s going to have surgery in the near future,” Allen said at Monday’s weekly press conference. “He did it in the first half against Rutgers. Obviously we feel very bad for him. He is an integral part of our team. He will start this long road to recovery and our staff will do a great job to prepare him for the fall.”
Camper leads Indiana with 46 receptions and 569 yards. He had two touchdowns in seven games. The junior college transfer had two huge performances, making 11 catches for 156 yards in his Hoosiers’ debut against Illinois and had 10 receptions for 126 yards against Cincinnati in his fourth game.
Camper played two seasons at Trinity Valley Community College in Texas before joining the Hoosiers.
Additionally, Allen said standout linebacker Cam Jones is out week-in-week with a foot injury. Jones was injured against Nebraska on Oct. 1 and has missed the last three games. Jones ranks second on Indiana with 54 tackles despite his absences.
The Hoosiers (3-5, 1-4 Big Ten) have lost five straight. They host Penn State (6-2, 3-2) on Saturday. –Field-Level Media
