After Matt Wells held his weekly Zoom press conference, defensive lineman Tony Bradford Jr. stepped up to the podium and mentioned that Nelson Mbanasor was now out for the season.

Mbanasor played solid snaps behind Eli Howard on the defensive line, along with Tyree Wilson. When Wells took over in December 2018, Mbanasor was planning to transfer out, but was convinced by Wells to stay with the Red Raiders.

After playing in 11 games last season, Mbanasor had a great camp according to the coaching staff, and was on pace to be a solid rotational player in 2020.

Now, he’ll miss the rest of the season.
