According to multiple reports, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Krishawn Hogan suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s win against the San Francisco 49ers, meaning his season is effectively over.

The former Marian University standout and local fan favorite was promoted from the Colts practice squad two weeks ago and appeared in 2 games before his season-ending injury, mostly contributing on special teams. He was originally signed by the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent.

The 6’3″, 222 pound wide receiver was an NAIA American Football Coaches Association First Team All-American last year for the Knights, recording 80 catches for 1,435 yards and 15 touchdowns. Additionally, he had 11 more touchdowns (10 rushing and one passing) en route to being named his conference’s offensive player of the year.

However, despite the latest setback, Hogan has promised to come back stronger than ever before–having already gone from former janitor to fulfilling his lifelong dream of playing in the NFL (via his personal Instagram account):

In the wake of Hogan’s injury, the Colts could promote fellow wide receiver Matt Hazel from their practice squad or perhaps sign another wideout as a ‘street free agent’.
