San Jose State senior wide receiver Noel Grigsby revealed Thursday that he has a torn meniscus in his left knee.

The recovery time from that injury is three to four months, which leaves open the possibility of a late December return if the Spartans make a bowl game.

"I'm trying to do everything I can to possibly come back before the season is over," Grigsby said in his first time speaking publicly since the injury.

San Jose State (3-3, 2-1 Mountain West) had previously only disclosed that Grigsby was "out indefinitely" with a knee injury. He had surgery Sept. 24.

Grigsby knew of the injury prior to the Sept. 7 game at Stanford but tried to play through it. He had six catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in that loss.

"I gave everything I had until they told me the only option was to get surgery," said Grigsby, who's not eligible for a medical redshirt.

He is San Jose State's all-time leader with 237 career catches and 3,121 yards.
