The Wolfpack's leading rusher last season, Baker has rushed for 1,272 yards in his career. He has played in 24 career games with a dozen starts, including Saturday's contest, and was named to the preseason 'watch' list for the 2007 Doak Walker Award last week. Baker has not taken a redshirt season and should be eligible for a medical redshirt.
"This is a tough situation for Toney and for our football team," said first-year head coach Tom O'Brien. "We wish him the best and will support him through his rehabilitation period."
