Dan Monteroso Injury: Freshman Out For Season With Broken Collarbone

A promising freshman who made big strides in fall camp is now done for the year.

Purdue's first major injury of the 2013 season has happened, and it will cost the Boilermakers one of their most promising freshman players. Dan Monteroso, a 6'3" true freshman that had impressed coaches and was very likely going to play right away, will instead miss the entire year with a broken collarbone:

Purdue’s football team will be without promising freshman Dan Monteroso after the Ohio native suffered a broken collarbone during Thursday’s practice, coach Darrell Hazell said. Hazell said Friday morning the 6-foot-3 receiver is scheduled to undergo surgery Saturday.

Monteroso was a 3-star prospect out of Ohio that was quickly rising up the depth chart at a position loaded with upperclassmen. Even the team's defensive backs were complimentary of him, calling him a natural that was keenly aware of everything on the field at all times. In most of hte practice updates of the past two weeks he has been mentioned as a near lock for coach Hazell's core group of six main receivers he wants to use.

With Monteroso out that opens things up a bit for everyone else. Junior Charles Torwudzo has to be considered, as well as fellow freshman DeAngelo Yancey. Redshirt freshmen Aloyis Gray, Cameron Posey, Jordan Woods, and Bilal Marshall could also move up.
