McNeese's Bronson Out For Season

Just about everything has gone right for the McNeese State football team this season.

Until today.

Today, McNeese confirms that senior safety Malcolm Bronson, the Cowboys' best player and vocal leader, will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Bronson hurt his left knee during the third quarter of McNeese's win over Weber State last Saturday.

He had to be helped off the field and did not return to the game. His younger brother, Ryan, played the rest of the game at Malcolm's position.

Bronson was the Cowboys' most valuable player in 2011, making three interceptions and leading the team with 90 tackles.

A first-team all-Southland Conference performer each of his first three years, Bronson was expected to become just the sixth player to make the first team four straight years.

Now Bronson will have to lead from the sidelines, and his teammates will have to win without him on the field.

Bronson was KPLC's Sports Person of the Week less than a month ago.

    A few scattered showers this afternoonA few scattered showers this afternoon

    We will start today with partly cloudy skies, building up for scattered thunderstorms later this afternoon. Rain chances are up to 40% today, so we should not see as much rain as yesterday. Most of the rain will come to an end by the late afternoon. After sunset, rain chances will go back down to zero percent overnight with mostly clear skies. In between any showers, we will have warm temperatures for southwest Louisiana.
