Temple (0-6) suffered a few injuries Friday at Cincinnati, the biggest of which came at the tight end position.
Junior Wanemi Omuso, whom the Owls rely on primarily as a blocker in the running game, suffered a torn knee ligament in the first half of the Owls’ 38-20 loss to the Bearcats and is finished for the season, Temple coach Matt Rhule said Monday.
“He’s played really well for us in the running game,” Rhule said.
Omuso’s injury is going to force Chris Coyer to be more involved as a blocker. That’s sort of a double-whammy for the Owls because Temple was hoping to get Coyer more involved in the passing game
