Colorado State G Jesse Carr suffers career-ending knee injury


It doesn’t get much more unfortunate than this for a college basketball player.

As seen in the Tweet above, ESPN’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that 5th-year senior guard Jesse Carr has suffered a career-ending injury that will end his time at Colorado State. Carr had been rehabbing an identical injury that caused him to miss the entirety of the 2012-2013 campaign, and if healthy, he was being counted on as a rotation player for Larry Eustachy this season. The Rams are also facing the harsh reality of life without Colton Iverson, as the big man has graduated and moved on to the pro circuit.

In 93 career games, Carr averaged 6.4 points per game on 44.3 percent shooting, but he missed all of one season and most of another with injuries, and could never re-establish himself. It is a complete and utter shame to see a promising career cut short by an inability to stay healthy, but that is an all too familiar tale in the world of college hoops.

Best of luck to Carr and his family as he moves on to post-basketball life.
