MANHATTAN — Kansas State center Reid Najvar will reportedly forgo his senior football season due to an injury.

Najvar’s decision is concussion-related, as first reported Friday by Pete Mundo of Heartland College Sports.

Najvar started every game last season as a junior, earning honorable mention on the coaches’ All-Big 12 team. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound senior from Houston began this season on the Rimington Trophy watch list.

Najvar earned the starting position last season with Dalton Risner, the starting center in 2015 as a freshman, moving to right tackle. Risner could return to center for the Wildcats but also could remain at tackle with sophomore Adam Holtorf taking over at center. Holtorf was praised by offensive line coach Charlie Dickey last week during K-State’s media day.
