Cody Fajardo injury: Nevada QB leaves game at end of first half with hip injury

New, comments

Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo injured his hip and is not expected to return against Wyoming

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Nevada Wolf Pack are in a tough battle against the Wyoming Cowboys, and are tied 21-21 early in the third quarter. However, a big blow came to Nevada as starting quarterback Cody Fajardo left the game in the second quarter after he threw an interception, and on that play he took a big hit. Fajarado was slow in getting up off the field, and was replaced by Devin Combs.

Fajardo is done for the game, and hopefully it is not too serious, but nonetheless this is a big blow for Nevada. Before Fajardo came out of the game he completed 19-of-26 passes for 221 yards, two touchdowns and that one interception.

Devin Combs has played well so far in place of Fajardo, but he is in a close game and will need to play well to lead Nevada to victory. Look for running back Stefphon Jefferson to get a lot more carries.
