Terry Wilson will not participate in spring football

Wilson will miss spring practice, but should be good to go for the season opener next year.

Terry Wilson plans to be healthy by the time the 2020 season kicks off next year.

However, Mark Stoops said on his coaches show Tuesday that Wilson will not be ready in time for spring practice.

Wilson suffered a torn patellar tendon in his left knee against Eastern Michigan on September 7th, which sidelined him for the rest of the season.

“He’s (Wilson) in great spirits, and he’ll be back with no problem,” Stoops said. “He’s on track with rehab, and things are going well.”

Wilson also made an appearance on the coaches show and spoke on his injury and rehabilitation:

“It’s going good. I’ve learned a lot of things going through this process, but rehab has been going good,” he said. “I’m on time with everything, I’m on schedule with everything. Just have to keep working and keep my head up.”

Wilson will be a redshirt senior next year, so it will be his final season of football unless he can catch on with a pro team. That makes it critical for him to get back on the field and working with his teammates ASAP, so hearing he won’t be a go for spring ball is a tad disheartening.

Even so, Wilson has very high expectations for 2020, as his mom revealed on Twitter:

Good back soon, Terry Touchdown.
