Eugene Jarvis will miss the remainder of the 2009 season with a kidney injury.
According to sources close to the Kent State football team, the star running back suffered a lacerated kidney in Saturday’s loss to Boston College. When Jarvis checked into the hospital, they discovered he was born with only one kidney.
Kent State is already starting its campaign to have the NCAA grant a sixth season of eligibility. Jarvis is a fifth-year senior you was a redshirt as a freshman due to an eligibility question. Due to a mistake by his high school, the NCAA ruled him academically ineligible. The NCAA then changed its mind and ruled him eligible after two-thirds of the season was in the books.
More to come …
ALSO … it looks like Giorgio Morgan may miss the Iowa State game with his injured ankle.
A QUICK NOTE … I just learned that the first team to call Kent State to ask about Eugene and ask where they could send flowers was the University of Akron. The Zips demonstrated some real class in a genuine show of concern, and that’s nice in a football rivalry that has had some ugly moments in the past with both teams doing some silly things on and off the field. It’s good to see a rival reach out like that.
