Statement From David Beaty on the Status of Michael Cummings

Kansas football head coach David Beaty provided an update on the status of quarterback Michael Cummings. 

On the status of quarterback Michael Cummings
“Michael sustained a left knee injury that is going to require surgery. Following his surgery he will work diligently, alongside our medical staff, to get back to the field as quickly as possible.”
On the play Michael Cummings was injured
“It was a complete freak accident. I have reviewed the film from Saturday and Michael Glatczak (the player who made the tackle) was being blocked down the field and had his back to the action for almost the entire play. At the last second he turned to make the tackle without having any idea who was carrying the ball. He is a great kid, a great teammate and again it was just a very unfortunate accident.”
