This is just horrible, and our prayers go out to Malek Young and his family.

Via The Sun Sentinel:

Malek Young, who was hurt in Miami’s 34-24 loss to Wisconsin in the Orange Bowl, has reportedly suffered a potentially career-ending injury according to the website CanesInsight.com, which described Young’s issue as a “neck/vertebrae injury.” The report continued to say, “It appears as though his football career is over.”

As of late Saturday night, Miami had not commented on the report, but several Hurricanes took to social media offering support for Young, including Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz.

“God has the best plan, even when we don’t understand His ways or His timing,” Diaz wrote on Twitter. “You are a great warrior and a true Cane…and there can only be one first…you’ll always be the first to rock the chain!”
