Colorado St. Rams starting quarterback Garrett Grayson was knocked out of Saturday's 41-21 loss to the Air Force Falcons as he broke his clavicle early in the fist quarter. Grayson suffered the injury on a running play where he elected to keep the ball instead of pitch it to his running back, and in the process of attempting to get a first down two Air Force defenders took him to the ground on that left shoulder.

Grayson had a tough time getting off the filed, and never returned to the game. He was replaced by M.J. McPeek. The latest news on the injury is that Grayson suffered broken clavicle and that there is no timetable for his return. A broken clavicle usually takes about six weeks to recover from, and by then the Rams season is pretty much done with. Head coach Jim McElwain did talk about the possibility of Grayson apply for a medical redshirt since he has played in just over four games this year.

In the mean time Colorado State will be quarterbacked by senior M.J. McPeek. In his three-plus quarter of play against Air Force, McPeek played well by completing 22-of-34 passes for 292 yards, plus he threw a two touchdowns and two interceptions. It looks like McPeek could be a solid replacement for the rest of the season, assuming he can continue that pace.
