    Default Gillis

    Hated to see Gillis go down tonight.
    Does anyone have an update on how bad it is?

    He didnt put any weight on one leg while being helped off of the field....not good.

    @TDARaginCajuns: UL sixth-year senior S Rodney Gillis broke his lower right leg in tonight's 48-24 win over Texas St. It may be career-ending, but not sure.

    That is bad news for the guy. I would hate to see him go out that way.

    The shot on the sideline after he came back on the field in crutches said everything that needed to be said about how much everyone in the locker room respects him. Hopefully he sticks around and provides the same leadership role that Gautier did after his injury last year. He may not be on the field, but he can still be a huge part of the team.

    He's the definition of dedication. He's battled through more injuries than most guys would to play football for us. Good luck to him wherever he ends up.


  6. Default Cajuns lose Gillis again during blowout win - The Daily Advertiser

    UL’s sixth-year senior with rotten luck was on the receiving end of yet another lick of it Saturday night.

    Ragin’ Cajuns coach Mark Hudspeth said safety Rodney Gillis broke his lower right leg in the first half of the Ragin’ Cajuns’ 48-24 win over Texas State at Cajun Field.

    UL officials weren’t immediately sure if the break involved the ankle.
