Delvon Roe's Season Could Be Over

Delvon Roe could miss the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury in St. Edward's season opener against Campbell Hall. The Michigan St. signee tore his meniscus and suffered damage to the cartilage according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer. The injury was worse than expected. He initially got an MRI done and it revealed a torn meniscus and a possible bone chip. After undergoing an arthroscope last Wednesday, doctors found some damage to the cartilage in his right knee. St. Edward's coach Eric Flannery said, "Some guys could play on what he has but because of his possible career and future, it's something that could get worse so it's something that needs to be taken care of right away,." Roe added, "I didn't think anything was wrong with it because I didn't feel a lot of pain,. But I knew something was wrong when it started feeling real bad in warmups. But I was OK because I was getting treatment throughout the game and there were timeouts every four minutes with the game being on TV." Roe could miss between six weeks and six months.
