Fritz: Tulane DL Friloux likely out for season
Adison Friloux, Tulane’s sophomore starting nose tackle, is likely out for the season with a knee injury, Green Wave coach Willie Fritz said Tuesday.
Friloux did not play in Tulane’s season-opening 42-10 victory over UMass on Saturday. The injury reportedly occurred in practice last week.
“We think so,” Fritz said when asked whether the injury would end Friloux’s season. “We’ll know for sure in a few days.”
Friloux, a Hahnville High product, has played in 18 games over two seasons with 42 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
Sophomore Eric Hicks started in Friloux’s place and was Tulane’s defensive lineman of the week, Fritz said.
Tulane takes on Alcorn State on Saturday night at Yulman Stadium to close out a season-opening home stand. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. A win would give the Green Wave its first 2-0 start in 20 years.
