Linebacker Doug Rigg, who suffered concussions this season against Oklahoma and Texas Tech, has likely seen the end of his college football career because of lingering issues, West Virginia Coach Dana Holgorsen said Tuesday.

“I feel bad for him,” Holgorsen said. “He’s been productive for us this year. He had an opportunity to play. Look at the positive side. He had an opportunity to play football in the Big 12 in his senior year. It didn’t work out the way he wanted, but he tried.”

Rigg, a senior from New Jersey, missed games against Georgia State and Kansas State following the concussions. He tried to play Saturday against TCU, but didn’t last.

“He’s probably done for the year,” Holgorsen said. “I know he’s going to be on the shelf a couple weeks. The last time I checked, a couple weeks means his season is over.”
