University of Wyoming sophomore running back D.J. May, the team’s leading rusher last season, could miss the 2013 season due a torn left pectoral muscle.

May said Friday he tore the muscle a couple of weeks ago while working out in Laramie during voluntary summer workouts. He was in a sling on Friday, and said the recovery time for this injury is about nine months.

If May redshirts, he will return in 2014 as a redshirt sophomore.

May led UW last season with 374 yards on 77 carries, an average of 4.9 yards per carry, and had one rushing touchdown. He also caught six passes for 35 yards.

UW is deep at running back with senior Brandon Miller (352 yards last season), sophomore Shaun Wick (350 yards, four touchdowns last season), senior Tedder Easton (44 yards last season) and true freshman Omar Stover, who enrolled in January and was listed No. 2 on the depth chart coming out of spring drills behind Miller.

True freshman Joshua Tapscott (5-foot-9, 200 pounds) has been working out with the team this summer.

The Cowboys open the 2013 season on the road at Nebraska at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31. The game will be televised by the Big Ten Network. Wyoming’s first home game is Saturday, Sept. 7 against Idaho. No game time has been set yet.

    We're going to miss May, but Wick was no slouch either. Probably the better inside zone runner and receiver. Story says he put on size which should help. Remember he missed close to four games last season. Miller will also be ready to produce big time going into his last year. I can see us possibly having a decent ground game. They should also stop platooning the backs so much. Runners need to get lathered up to get in rythm.

    Of course we will miss May, but Miller and Wick are more than capable. I thought Wick was our best back last year. Excellent receiver and doesnt dance around. He hits the hole really hard. It sounds like he bulked up so that will help with the inside runs. A lot of people forget he missed most of four games with injuries. Miller as a senior will give everything hes got in his final year. He also is an excellent receiver. This is an opportunity for these two to get more carries and stay on the field more. Most backs get stronger as the game goes on. Constant platooning messes up their rhythm. Look for big years from both Miller and Wick.

    That's too bad. He was about the only really bright spot in the Cowboy running game last season.
