WVU Defense to be Without Another Member of Secondary for Rest of Season



WVU Football

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – WVU has suffered another blow to its defensive secondary.

In the midst of talking about his team’s win streak, Neal Brown had to also deliver some unfortunate news during his weekly press conference on Monday. Brown said safety Keyshawn Cobb is slated to have surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

“He’s going to get surgery this week and he will be out for the year,” said Brown.

He didn’t go into further detail on Cobb’s injury, but the Buffalo transfer’s season is over after appearing in only two games for the Mountaineers. Cobb played against Penn State and Duquesne.

This means WVU has lost two of its transfer additions to the secondary early in the season. Last week, Brown announced Montre Miller is out for the year and will be needing to apply for a waiver to continue his college career.

Fortunately for West Virginia, the secondary has been a big factor in the wins over Pitt and Texas Tech. In particular, the secondary forced three interceptions in the Backyard Brawl.

Cobb recorded 67 total tackles, 36 solo, 31 assists and an interception for Buffalo in 2022.
