Abare probably out for year

Junior defensive end Larry Abare will most likely miss the remainder of the season with a lateral collateral ligament injury in his left knee. Abare, who was injured in a 51-12 win over Cornell Saturday, was a second-team All-Ivy selection a year ago when he tied for the team lead with brother Bobby with 49 solo tackles. As a freshman, he shared Yale’s special teams player of the year award with Bobby. He has remained Yale’s best player on special teams coverage the past two seasons.

He is seeking a second opinion to see if he will have season-ending surgery, but it is expected he will have to.

Larry Abare will be eligible to apply for medical redshirt having played in two games, or 20 percent of the season. He is expected to apply if he misses the year.
