CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Kevin Ogletree, Virginia's top wide receiver, suffered a serious knee injury and is expected to miss the 2007 season.
Ogletree tore an anterior cruciate ligament in practice Friday and will require surgery, coach Al Groh said on Wednesday.
"He tried to make a cut, and it just gave out on him," Groh said on a teleconference with reporters.
Ogletree ranked third in receptions in the Atlantic Coast Conference last season as a sophomore, catching 52 passes for 582 yards and four touchdowns. He played as a true freshman in 2005, so Ogletree can redshirt this season and return in 2008 with two years of eligibility remaining.
"He's understandably disappointed," Groh said. "The third year is where it really happens for a lot of guys."
With Ogletree out, the Cavaliers' top returning wide receiver is rising junior Maurice Covington, who had six catches for 45 yards last season.
