Injury update: BYU's Austen Jorgensen done for season

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Season-ending knee surgery will spell the end of BYU senior linebacker, Austen Jorgensen's career with the Cougars.

BYU senior linebacker Austen Jorgensen will undergo season-ending knee surgery this upcoming Tuesday. With this year being Jorgensen's senior season it will also spell the end of his career with the Cougars.

Jorgenson has been an important contributor for the BYU defense this season filling in for the suspended Spencer Hadley at the buck linebacker position. He is currently second on the team in tackles with 47, including one tackle for a loss, and also has a forced fumble this season.

On his career, Jorgensen has 109 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, and a forced fumble

We learned of Jorgenson's injury late Wednesday night from this tweet sent out by his mother, Julie Jorgensen.

Unfortunately, Jorgensen is no stranger to season-ending injuries. Jorgensen received a medical hardship year after suffering a season-ending injury against Boise State in what would have been his senior year last season. This surgery will be Jorgensen's third knee surgery since suiting up for BYU. He has also undergone three shoulder surgeries during his time as a Cougar.

We wish Jorgensen a quick recovery and good luck in his future endeavors.
