Defensive Tackle Ellison Jordan Reportedly Recovering From Broken Kneecap

Rising redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Ellison Jordan finished his 2017 redshirt freshman season with a broken kneecap, according to Julie Donaldson of NBC Sports Washington. Jordan attended the Washington Wizards game Saturday evening even with the broken kneecap, according to Donaldson’s tweet.

Jordan did not play in the Fiesta Bowl and finished the season with nine tackles and half of a sack. With the departures of starters Curtis Cothran and Parker Cothren, Jordan has the potential to fill out needed depth behind assumed 2018 starters Kevin Givens and Robert Windsor. PJ Mustipher, a four-star defensive tackle signee from the class of 2018, will compete for a spot his true freshman year.

It’s unclear when Jordan originally broke his kneecap and how long this recovery process could take, but this injury certainly calls his spring ball participation into question.

At this time last season, Jordan was recovering from a torn ACL, according to 247 Sports.
