Coleman Status Still Unknown PDF Print

If you think the Appalachian State University football team is having injury problems this season, what about Chattanooga.

The Mocs were hit by defections and career-ending injuries during the off-season, and now, their starting quarterback B.J. Coleman has been on the shelf for nearly two weeks with a sprained right throwing shoulder.
And his status for Saturday's at Elon remains uncertain. Coleman, who did not practice on Tuesday, hasn't played since he was injuried on October 8 (a 28-27 loss) against Georgia Southern. Red-shirt freshman Terrell Robinson has filled in, and he's done a fantastic job.
Primarily a running quarterback, Robinson sparked a huge rally against Georgia Southern, only to be stopped short on a two-point conversion try with the game on the line; and he led the Mocs (3-4 overall 1-3 Southern Conference) to a lopsided victory over Western Carolina last week. Robinson has captured the past two SoCon freshman of the week awards.
As of now, Coleman, who was on the Walter Payton Award Watch List to start the season, has been listed as the starting quarterback for the Mocs on Saturday at Elon. But if can't go, Robinson will make his third appearance and second consecutive start for UTC.
Coleman has completed 60% of his passes (111-186 with six interceptions) for 1,295 yards and six touchdowns in six games this season.
