The reports are true. For a second consecutive season, the Wyoming Cowboys’ starting QB Sean Chambers is done for the season with an injury.

Wyoming coach Craig Bohl confirmed the news during his weekly press conference on Monday. Bohl said ‘the injury is to his left knee and deals with cartilage damage, but nothing with the meniscus or ligaments.’ Bohl said ‘it was more serious than originally thought and the doctors wanted to get in and fix it right away.’

Chambers played in eight games during his redshirt freshman season and led Wyoming to a 6-2 record. He was the second-leading rusher on the team this year with 567 yards and 10 TD runs. Chambers was averaging almost 71 yards per game and 6.3 yards per rush for an offense that averages 240.9 yards per game on the ground. Chambers went 52-of-121 passing for 915 yards. He threw seven touchdowns and was intercepted three times. Chambers averaged 114.4 yards per game and completed 43 percent of his passes.

Chambers played in four games during the 2018 season. He came in during the Utah State game, then started the next three, all wins by UW, before getting injured on the first drive against Air Force. Thanks to an NCAA rule that allows freshmen to play in up to four games and still keep their redshirt year, Chambers returned as a “redshirt freshman” this season. In 2018, he ran for 329 yards, two touchdowns, and averaged 5.6 yards per attempt. Chambers was 15-25 for 266 yards passing with three TDs and no interceptions.

Bohl said the outlook for Chambers return after the season ‘is good.’
