Bowling Green receiver Deric Phouthavong will miss the rest of the season, Falcons coach Mike Jinks confirmed Monday.

The senior suffered an apparent knee injury during Bowling Greena€™s loss Sept. 29 at Georgia Tech, and he did not return to practice before the Falcons played last week at Toledo.

Further medical evaluation confirmed Phouthavong suffered a torn meniscus that will prevent his return to the team this football season.

a€œIt looks like we wona€™t be having him for the remainder of the year, so our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family,a€ Jinks said.

The injury comes as a hit to the Falconsa€™ offense. Phouthavong had been a regular in the passing offense and had been playing the best football of his BG career.
