Early on, the VCU coaching staff was hopeful that the injury wasn’t serious.
“High spirits,” Weber posted on his Facebook page after the game. “Just know i (sic) am in good hands the Lord has me in any battle that I will ever face Thank everyone for all the support VCU RAMNATION I LOVE YOU GUYS”
This is the same type of injury that Robert Griffin III suffered during his rookie campaign in a Washington Redskins playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. Two years later, some believe that Griffin III still hasn’t fully recovered from the injury.
Time will tell how long it will take for Weber to return to action, if at all. His season is likely over this year and may have to apply to the NCAA for an additional year.
Weber was just 12 steals from breaking the all-time NCAA record. He was one of the team leaders, who was averaging 7.9 points and 4.4 assists per game.
VCU lost the game, snapping its 12-game win streak. But the loss was the last thing on their minds following the game, as they were more concerned about Weber’s health.
Weber was replaced in the game by Treveon Graham, who led all Rams scorers with 18 points.
