Local report: Dislocated hip ends Robertson’s season

October 20, 2011 by  

ELLENSBURG, Wash. — Ryan Robertson’s season is over.

As was feared Saturday when the Central Washington quarterback was wheeled out of Tomlinson Stadium in an ambulance, the redshirt junior suffered a dislocated right hip in the Wildcats’ 30-20 loss to Humboldt State.

CWU head coach Blaine Bennett confirmed the injury and Robertson’s status Tuesday before practice.

“It’s not as bad as it could have been, because he won’t need surgery,” Bennett said. “As for this season, he’s done. But at least he’ll have enough time to rehab and get ready for next year.”

Jose Mohler, a junior transfer from North Dakota State, will start Saturday’s game at Dixie State with David Weisner the backup. Mohler finished last Saturday’s game.
