Air Force Academy center Michael Husar will miss the remainder of the 2012 season with ACL and MCL injuries in his left knee, according to Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette. Husar's injury leaves the Falcons without one of their best linemen as they prepare for Saturday's game against the Michigan Wolverines in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Husar suffered the knee injury during Air Force's season-opening 49-21 demolishing of Idaho State. Husar, whose father played for the Wolverines, was replaced at center by junior Austin Hayes.
Air Force is notorious for its option attack, which requires solid fundamentals from the team's offensive line. As such, any key injury within the group spells trouble for the Falcons, who ran for 484 yards in their first game.
