Central Michigan left guard Jake Olson's college football career is over after having season-ending surgery on a broken wrist last week.
Head coach Dan Enos confirmed the news earlier this week, saying Olson, already in his sixth season with the team, would remain with the team in a mentor role.
"I feel terrible for Jake," Enos said.
The Central Michigan football team will don new uniforms on Saturday when it takes the field at Kelly/Shorts Stadium to play Toledo.
Football will be sporting a retro-look wardrobe for Traditions Day Saturday against Toledo
Steve Klein, general manager for International Marketing Group, the company in charge of branding and licensing for the CMU athletics department, made the announcement Wednesday night during a meeting with the CMU chapter of the American Marketing Association.
The uniforms cost $14,465 and resemble the design the University of Michigan wore against Notre Dame in 2011.
A calmer, more relaxed Dan Enos appeared earlier this week.
In the stark contrast from a frustrated Central Michigan coach who appeared before the media Saturday night following his team's 31-21 loss at UNLV, a game in which the Chippewas allowed 31 unanswered points.
"We had a lot of opportunities to separate ourselves, and we just didn't do it," Enos said of the game during Monday's Mid-American Conference coaches' teleconference.

LAS VEGAS -- Having a balanced offense is nice, and something Dan Enos has preached since day one, but Central Michigan could only pull it off for one half on Saturday.
And after CMU's 31-21 loss that saw the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, score 31 unanswered points, it ended up being the difference maker.
The Chippewas outgained the Rebels 273-115 in the first half, racing out to a 21-0 lead in the second quarter.
For the first time this season, it truly felt like a college football Saturday.
Most around this area were watching Michigan take on Mid-American Conference cellar-dweller Akron or UCLA against Nebraska.
While most expected the Bruins and Cornhuskers to be a good game, nobody, not even Akron fans, thought it would be a close one at the Big House.
The Zips have combined three wins in the last three seasons – that's 3-33 – and have not had a winning record since 2005.
LAS VEGAS -- For a while, things were clicking.
The Central Michigan offense was balanced, the defense making plays.
On the typical college campus, the starting quarterback is one of the most recognizable guys around.
The same couldn't be said about redshirt freshman Cooper Rush, if not for his unmistakable red hair.
"I haven't had much (attention on campus) at all," Rush said.
He isn't boisterous.

I’ve been watching college football my entire life and have never understood why some teams had a chance to go to the championship while others could only dream.
After a few years, I realized that the biggest problem with the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) was its reliance on computers, because the underdog never gets taken into account.
One of the more interesting, but less talked about, position battles has been settled, with two relative newcomers to the football team emerging at defensive end.
On Tuesday, CMU's depth chart for its game Saturday at UNLV named senior Jeremy Gainer and sophomore Louis Palmer starters at the end spots.
The official declaration comes two weeks after head coach Dan Enos declined to officially name starters at both spots prior to the season-opener at Michigan.
One football player has something to say before fellow students become jealous that the team is going to Las Vegas.
“It’s a business trip,” said senior receiver Jerry Harris.
Alex Niznak couldn't stop talking last week.
About the Michigan game, about finally getting his opportunity to lead the football team at quarterback, about the home opener against New Hampshire.
A week later, things have changed.
Aaron McMann senior reporter (2-0): This is a game CMU can win and should win. UNLV comes in reeling, losing both of its first two games in blowout fashion and its coach, Bobby Hauck, feeling the pressure.
Quarterback Nick Sherry, who is embroiled in a battle himself with backup Caleb Herring, is a mess right now and vulnerable.

The hits keep coming on the injury front, for the Central Michigan football team and offensive lineman Jake Olson.
Olson, who left Saturday's 24-21 win against New Hampshire with an injury, had surgery Thursday morning on a broken wrist and will miss the remainder of the season, a team spokesman told Central Michigan Life.
The 6-foot-8, 305-pound left tackle left in the third quarter with a wrist injury, returned and played in the fourth quater but later discovered his wrist had swelled up.
