Arizona State defensive back Joey Bryant, a 2009 Saint Louis alumnus, will miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury during practice last Tuesday.
Bryant, who started the first three games of the season, had 15 tackles and is still the only Sun Devil to record both a sack and an interception this season.
Arizona State coach Todd Graham confirmed the ACL tear to reporters after Saturday’s 34-24 loss to Stanford. Bryant told the Star-Advertiser last Tuesday he had injured himself during practice that day.
Bryant joined the football team after competing in track last spring and earned a scholarship just before the start of the season.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior picked off a pass in his first D-I game against New Mexico State and had a career-high seven tackles against San Diego State.
Bryant transferred to ASU on a track scholarship from Mt. San Antonio College.
