Minnesota safety Winfield out for season with foot injury
Coach P.J. Fleck said Sunday the Gophers were "heartbroken" for Winfield, who suffered a season-ending injury for the second straight year in the 42-13 loss Saturday. The Terrapins rushed for 315 yards in the game.
Last season, Winfield played in only four games and was granted a medical redshirt after suffering a hamstring injury. Fleck said the team believes Winfield will meet the NCAA's waiver requirement for a sixth year of eligibility. If granted, Winfield would have three years left.
Winfield had a punt return for a touchdown this season, plus an interception and a fumble recovery.
