Missouri tight end Victor Sesay is out for the rest of the season after a Colorado player illegally hit him in the third quarter of Missouri's 21-16 loss to the Buffaloes on Saturday.
Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Monday that Sesay suffered a patella tendon injury on the hit, and he had surgery Monday. He will not be available for four to six months. Sesay would not comment after Saturday's game and was not available for comment Monday.
Sesay, a junior college transfer, caught a 17-yard touchdown pass earlier in the game, and he had 15 catches for 154 yards to go along with three touchdowns on the season. Clint Matthews will take his spot as the second tight end.
