Prinz Kande Injury: Kansas Linebacker To Miss Season

Kansas Jayhawks junior linebacker Prinz Kande will miss the remainder of the 2012 season after injuring his right knee against the Rice Owls. Kande was making the first start of his collegiate career in the 1-point loss to Rice, but he had to be helped off the field after injuring his ACL and MCL on Saturday.

Kande may be eligible for a medical redshirt from the NCAA, which could potentially see him keep an extra year of eligibility. To be eligible for a medical redshirt, the player in question cannot have competed in more than two of the school's contests or 20 percent of the season (whichever is greater), and Kande has not. If granted, Kande will be eligible for two more seasons.

Kande finished the game with three tackles and a sack, and Charlie Weiss confirmed that Kande was the only member of the Jayhawks to suffer serious injury.
