Appalachian State wide receiver CoCo Hilliary and the Mountaineers suffered a huge blow at practice on Tuesday.
Hillary, a red-shirt junior, suffered a season-ending knee injury at practice Tuesday afternoon at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Fortunately, the injury is not career ending. Hilliary, who is third on the team in receiving, had 19 catches for 283 yards and three touchdowns.
He was also ranked 23rd nationally in kick-off returns, averaging nearly 25 yards a return. Hilliary was ASU's leading receiver last year with 56 catches. He came to ASU as a quarterback, and he was listed as a backup on the depth-chart last season.
