Once again, the bye week is not going well for the BYU Cougars.
BYU announced Thursday that backup linebacker Austen Jorgensen's career is over due to a knee injury and senior inside receiver and punt returner JD Falslev will miss the next 3-4 weeks after suffering a fractured hand.
Jorgensen, a 6-foot-2, 232-pound linebacker from Mount Pleasant, Utah and North Sanpete High, will have season-ending surgery next week to repair cartilage damage to his knee. Jorgensen has made 47 tackles in eight games this season for 6-2 BYU. He has started in three games.
Jorgensen made 108 tackles, including 55 solo stops and one sack, in 45 games in his career.<
