UW senior RB Jesse Callier out for season with torn Achilles
Tuesday September 23rd, 2014

Washington running back Jesse Callier ruptured his Achilles in the team's win over Georgia State on Saturday and is out for the season, head coach Chris Petersen said at a press conference Monday.

Callier was injured on the opening kickoff in the Huskies' 45-14 win. He missed the 2012 season after tearing his ACL in the first game of the year.

“That’s a hard one to take, just a guy that’s a senior and some of the things that he’s been through,” Petersen said. “He’s doing such a great job for us. So that’s hard.”

Callier had 19 carries for 91 yards and a touchdown this season and has 191 carries for 997 yards and five touchdowns over his career.

Because he's a fifth-year senior, the injury effectively ends Callier's college career. But the running back apparently doesn't see his football days ending with his Achilles tear.
