Utah State quarterback situation is in bad shape after Darell Garretson injury

Utah State is down another quarterback after Darell Garretson injured his wrist in a loss to Colorado State.

The Utah State Aggies not only suffered a 16-13 loss to the Colorado State Rams but they lost quarterback Darell Garretson to a wrist injury that knocked him out in the third quarter. Garretson was seen wearing a sling and having an ice pack on his injured wrist.

Prior to leaving the game, Garretson completed 14-of-19 for 132 yards and also had an interception. Senior Craig Harrison entered this game in the second half against the Rams and this was his first action all year outside of seeing some playing time against Idaho State. Harrison came in last year as the first replacement when Chuckie Keeton tore his ACL, but was quickly replaced by Garretson.

Harrison's night did not go all that well as he was just 5-of-12 with just 28 yards, overall the Utah State offense struggled to get yards against this Rams defense.

Harrision could be the starter for the foreseeable future as head coach Matt Wells said in his post game press conference that Garretson could be out "for a while," and more evaluation will be done once the team is back in Logan.

While Harrision has the experience by being in the Aggies system over the past few years, there could be a calling for freshmen Kent Myers and D.J. Nelson. Wells may want to try to hold of playing either of those and not burn their redshirts.

Utah State is back in action next Saturday when they host UNLV next Saturday.
