Lindenwold senior quarterback Malik Muldrow, who was on pace to become the Colonial Conference's leader in career passing yards, is likely out for the season with an injury, Lions coach James McGuirl said Tuesday.
McGuirl said Muldrow suffered a broken rib and punctured lung in Lindenwold's 12-7 victory over Gateway on Sept. 19.
Muldrow scored both touchdowns in that game, including a 37-yard run after he was injured, McGuirl said.
"I guess it was adrenaline," McGuirl said. "He didn't even know he was hurt. He went home that night and started having chest pains and shortness of breath and went to the hospital."
McGuirl said there was an "outside chance" Muldrow would play in the Lions' last couple of games.
"We're not counting on it," McGuirl said.
Muldrow entered this season with exactly 4,300 passing yards. The Colonial Conference record of 5,101 was set in 2002 by Audubon's Joe Flacco, now the Baltimore Ravens quarterback.
Last season, Muldrow was 157-for-307 passing for 2,090 yards. He passed for three touchdowns and ran for two in Lindenwold's first two games this season, both victories.
