"Jarvis is a true champion," said Doeren said in a statement. "This team and staff love him as a brother and respect him as a leader. It is so unfortunate that a player like Jarvis, who has been through two other ACL surgeries, has to endure another. I know that he will have a tremendous attitude and will use all the support available to him to have a healthy recovery."
Byrd started as a true freshman in 2009 before suffering his first torn ACL against North Carolina. After missing the 2010 season rehabbing his knee, Byrd suffered a second torn ACL during 2011 summer workouts, missing that season. He only played four games in 2012 thanks to other injuries.
