The second year hybrid player was mostly used as a fullback

Schefter reports that FB John Lovett has suffered an ACL injury and will miss the rest of the season. 

Lovett had appearaed on the injury report with a knee injury this week and had gone from a full to a limited participant from Wednesday to Thursday. 

A 6-foot-2, 234-pound second-year player out of Princeton, Lovett was originally signed by the Chiefs and spent his rookie season on injured reserve.

He played quarterback in college, appearing in 26 games and completing 208 of 313 passes (66.5 pct.) for 2,509 yards and 31 touchdowns with just five interceptions. Lovett added 1,589 rushing yards on 282 attempts (5.6 avg.) and 42 TDs. He also recorded 51 receptions for 553 yards (10.8 avg.) and two TDs. In 2018, Lovett became Princeton's first two-time first-team All-American since Keith Elias (1992-93) after leading the Tigers to their first perfect season since 1964.

What is it about the H-back position? It appears to be cursed.

Not sure how good of a blocker Lovett it, but he's pretty limited as a receiver and runner, and prob not on the 53 with Deguara healthy. That said, was rooting for the guy to get more carries/targets. Sternberger can take Lovett's snaps.
