Hoosiers wide receiver D.J. Matthews is going to have to miss the rest of Indiana’s season.

Tom Allen announced earlier on Monday that Matthews suffered a torn ACL and he’ll have to undergo surgery for it.

This is a big loss for Indiana as he had been one of their best receivers thus far. His best game came against Cincinnati on Sept. 18 when he finished with 5 receptions for 120 yards. He finishes the season with 13 receptions for 165 yards and 1 touchdown.

Before this season, Matthews put up his best numbers in 2018 as a sophomore. He finished with 41 receptions for 380 yards and 1 touchdown. In 2019, he came close to breaking all of those numbers but fell just shy as he finished with 36 receptions for 355 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Hoosiers will have to get everyone else to step up in Mathews’ absence and that especially holds true when they travel to Penn State this Saturday.
