FORT COLLINS — Colorado State's football program received some heartbreaking news earlier today as it was confirmed that quarterback Collin Hill will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL suffered in the team's 55-34 loss at Arkansas Saturday.

The redshirt junior signal caller was injured in the third quarter of the loss to the Razorbacks and was replaced by fellow classmate Patrick O'Brien.

Halting what was a breakout campaign, the significant injury was the third to Hill's left knee and puts his college football future in jeopardy after already making two comebacks.

A South Carolina native, Hill compiled nine total touchdowns, eight passing, in the team's first three games, including three in CSU's 52-31 loss to Colorado in the Rocky Mountain Showdown in Denver.

O'Brien and Justice McCoy are the two quarterbacks expected to compete for playing time as the Rams host Toledo Saturday night at 8 p.m.
