USU Football: Kennedy ruled out for Saturday, could be worse

Utah State's injury woes have hit the quarterback position.

Senior back-up Adam Kennedy is out for Saturday's game at Colorado State and he could be out indefinitely, the Salt Lake Tribune has learned.

Kennedy first injured the shoulder against Southern Utah in the season-opener. He's played sparingly, taking just one snap this past week against Wisconsin. Sources tell The Tribune that Kennedy is being evaluated on a week-by-week basis. But the possibility of him being out indefinitely, even missing the remainder of the season, is there.

If Kennedy doesn't take another snap this season, he will be eligible for a medical redshirt. Although he's a back-up to Chuckie Keeton, he's been a team leader this year, and he's proven himself by winning five games at the end of last season.

In his place, Devonta Glover-Wright will serve as the second team quarterback for Saturday behind Keeton. On the surface, that seems odd, because Glover-Wright is a safety. But he's already the "Wildcat" quarterback for the team. And he played the position at the junior college level. And since the coaching staff is intent on redshirting Jeff Manning, the designated quarterback for the future, Glover-Wright is suddenly thrust into the spotlight.
