Wake Foresta€™s season-long trend of crippling injuries continued Sunday with the news that freshman quarterback Sam Hartman will miss the rest of the season with a leg injury.

The Deacons announced the injury Sunday afternoon. Hartman is the 12th scholarship player to be lost for the season, and by missing Thursday nighta€™s game hea€™ll be the 38th scholarship player to have missed at least one game for the Deacons this season.

Hartman appears to suffer the injury on one of the final plays of Saturdaya€™s 41-24 loss to Syracuse.

On a second-and-goal play from the 9-yard line with 1:30 left, Hartman gets hit simultaneously by two Syracuse defendersA a€” the first low by defensive end Alton Robinson, the second high by defensive tackle Chris Slayton. Hartman appears to favor his right leg for the final three playsA a€” holding was called on the play that Hartman took the hit. On the last play of the game, Hartman runs a few steps to the right and falls down without contact.

Hartman tried to jog off the field, but appeared to be favoring his right foot or leg. He gingerly walked to the sideline, where Wake Foresta€™s training staff started examining him.

Wake Foresta€™s release says that Hartman will miss a€œremainder of the 2018 regular season,a€ leaving open the possibility that he could return for a bowl game. To gain bowl eligibility, the Deacons have to win two of the last three games, which are at N.C. State on Thursday night, home against Pittsburgh on Nov. 17 and at Duke on Nov. 24.

The news that Hartman suffered a leg injury that will cost him at least the final three regular-season games came less than 24 hours after Coach Dave Clawson reiterated that Hartman was the Deaconsa€™ quarterback.
