Marvin Kinsey to miss remainder of 2016 season with torn ACL

Marvin Kinsey will miss the rest of the 2016 season due to a torn ACL, the freshman running back tweeted Monday afternoon.



Despite being listed third on the depth chart, Kinsey was a consistent factor in the Rams rushing attack this season. On 93 carries, Kinsey rushed for 546 yards, averaging 5.9 yards per-carry and recording seven touchdowns, which ranks highest amongst Mountain West freshman.

Kinsey saw just 12 carries in the first two weeks of the season, but after scoring his first career touchdown and totaling 18 carries for 97 yards against Northern Colorado, the Atlanta, Georgia native came on strong in the second half of the season. Kinsey rushed for a touchdown in five of the final six games of the season and rushed for at least 60 yards in four of them.

Kinsey’s season high total in rushing yards came against New Mexico in the final game at Hughes Stadium (129). Kinsey’s 75-yard touchdown run was also the longest play from scrimmage during the 2016 season.

Coming out of high school, Kinsey was one of the Rams mostly highly touted recruits. A 2016 graduate of Riverwood High School in Sandy Springs, Georgia, Kinsey was the first player in program history to have his jersey retired. A multi-sport athlete, he also lettered four times in track and once in wrestling, along with winning a pair of regional titles in the 400-meter and 200-meter and three region championships in the 4×100 and 4×400 relays.
