Kuksa out for season
with neck injury
UND coach Chris Mussman said Wednesday that freshman safety Cam Kuksa will miss the remainder of the season with a neck injury.
Kuksa finished the Portland State game last Saturday with a career-high 13 tackles in what was his fourth start of the season. He moved up to second on the team in total tackles with 44.
"After consulting with medical professionals, we have decided to shut Cam down for the remainder of the season," Mussman said. "He was starting to play great football for us and obviously has a bright future, so doing this now will hopefully get him healed up and ready to go for the rest of what should be a promising career here at UND."

Grand Forks Red River graduate and Nebraska-Omaha forward Alex Simonson, who was temporarily suspended for an incident in Omaha's Old Market, has been cleared in the incident according to the Omaha World Herald.
Two players -- forward Matt White and defenseman Preston Hodge -- were kicked off the team after the incident, which allegedly involved racial slurs and a fight.
Simonson didn't use racial slurs or attempt to join the fight, according to an attorney. He only attempted to aid Hodge after the defenseman was knocked unconscious. Omaha coach Dean Blais told the Herald that Simonson "is a good kid" and that he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
