Sean Chambers ‘cleared’ to resume football activities
LARAMIE -- Sean Chambers Tuesday afternoon announced on Twitter he has officially been cleared by doctors to resume football activities after a left knee injury cut his redshirt freshman season short.
You think Wyoming's quarterback is happy to get that news?
He wasn't the only one.
The Kerman, Calif., product started under center in the Cowboys' first eight games of the season. Chambers was injured Oct. 26 against Nevada after diving into the end zone for his 10th rushing touchdown of the season. Wyoming built a 24-3 lead in the first half and Chambers spent the second in street clothes.
During the bye week, it was discovered that Chambers' injury was more severe than originally thought
“We were hoping for the best, but once doctor’s got in they found that they needed to do some repair,” Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl said back in October. “The outlook, long term, is very optimistic so we are encouraged by that.”
Chambers threw for 915 yards and seven touchdowns while leading the Cowboys to a 6-2 record, including a season-opening 37-31 upset of Missouri, where Chambers rushed for 120 yards and a 75-yard touchdown, highlighted by a stiff arm on a Tiger defender.
Chambers freshman season in Laramie also ended with a knee injury. He played in just four games, which gave him another season of eligibility, per NCAA rules. Chambers will be just a sophomore when the 2020 campaign begins.
