Western Michigan senior Justin Ferguson was injured in the fourth quarter against the Toledo Rockets on ESPN2. Ferguson was injured with the Broncos leading 48-21.
Ferguson suffered a leg injury and needed to be taken off the field on a cart. As he was talking to his teammates on the cart, he said “finish it.”
He even rowed the boat as he was going off the field. Ferguson was disappointed that his season may be over with his injury.
ESPN elected not to show the replay of Ferguson’s injury. He was recognized on Senior Night before the game.
“(Ferguson’s ankle) was this way,” Fleck said during his postgame press conference, gesturing a sideways bend – not the way ankles are designed to move. “You could see it and our entire team saw it. The first thing I did was get everyone away (so they weren’t looking at it). I don’t exactly have the strongest stomach, so I couldn’t sit there and focus on it.
“All I did was look him in his eyes, hold his hand and just tell him how much he meant to me, what he’s meant to this culture. And, really, to be able to use the culture moving forward. Yeah, football might be done for him. So, what? Think of all the things you’ve learned in this culture.”
