In his first game back since the opener at Utah, following a rehab stint following back surgery, Romeus tears ACL in first game back.

Dave Wannstedt said at his Monday press conference that senior defensive end Greg Romeus tore his ACL against UConn. Romeus left the game in the second half and did not return. Wannstedt confirmed the injury today.

"This is a young man I've got strong, strong feelings for," Wannstedt said. "He did sustain the knee injury. It was an ACL tear in the game. He is going to get a second opinion on Tuesday. It appears now, the year is over."

Wannstedt said Romeus would get his health in order to be ready for the NFL draft.

"The plan is, he'll get doctor's recommendation, do what he has to do, ten he'll get ready for the NFL draft."

At the conclusion of the press conference, when asked if there was a possibility of Romeus getting a sixth year of eligibility, Wannstedt did not rule it out.

"We really haven't crossed that bridge yet," Wannstedt said. "I'd love to have him for another year, I'll tell you that right now, without even talking to him."
