Houston running back Alton McCaskill suffered a serious leg injury during a non-contact play during the Cougars’ practice on Friday night, a source told The Cougar.

McCaskill had a breakout freshman season in 2021, rushing for 961 yards and 16 touchdowns while also hauling in 21 receptions for 113 yards and two scores. McCaskill’s record-breaking season earned him the American Athletic Conference’s Rookie of the Year award.

All signs pointed to McCaskill once again being the Cougars’ lead back for the 2022 season.
