Kansas State senior star middle linebacker Daniel Green is out for the rest of the season following a pectoral injury suffered last Saturday in Columbia and a season-ending surgery, head coach Chris Klieman announced at the top of his weekly press conference on Tuesday.

Green, who surprised coaches, teammates, media members and fans alike when he decided to return for a sixth and final season, is one of just a handful of players left on the roster who was here when Klieman and staff arrived in Manhattan in 2019, and the bond between the fifth-year Wildcat coach and the two-time captain is a strong one, making this week’s news that much tougher to swallow.
