(STATS) - Towson's huge road win over Maine this past Saturday came at a cost as senior running back Shane Simpson suffered a knee injury that will sideline him for the remainder of the season.
Simpson suffered ACL and MCL tears in the first quarter of the Tigers' 45-23 win - a matchup of then-Top 10 teams.
Simpson ranked No. 2 in the FCS in all-purpose yards per game and was the special teams player of the year in CAA Football last season. He earned second-team All-America honors.
His 4,751 career all-purpose yards, including 337 this season, lead all active FCS players, but that total will likely be passed soon.
On Saturday, No. 5 Towson (3-0) will play another nationally ranked opponent, hosting No. 18 Villanova (3-0).
