I don't know if they still do it, but some athletes have been given a 6th year when they have lost 2 full seasons due to injuries. Jason White, former Sooner QB, played 6 years.... but missed 2 seasons due to knee injuries.
It still happens. Rare, but does happen, if both injuries are serious enough. Obviously way too early to know if that is the case here.
