According to, Edwards hurt his foot yesterday afternoon.  Edwards’ roommate and teammate, Brian Quick, took the signal-caller to Watauga Medical Center where he was treated and released.


At this time, Edwards is expected to play in the Apps’ season opener at East Carolina on September 5.


Coach Jerry Moore released the following statement regarding Edwards’ injury:


“First of all, we’re all fortunate and grateful that Armanti wasn’t more seriously injured in this accident.  It’s unfortunate for him because he has put a lot of energy into being a great leader on and off the field this summer. He has been instrumental in orchestrating voluntary workouts with his teammates while also putting in the academic work — with classes and an internship — that will allow him to graduate in three-and-a-half years this December. But, as he’s demonstrated many times, his toughness is second-to-none, so I’m confident that he’ll be back on the field with his teammates as soon as possible.”


The Mountaineers begin practicing for the 2009 season tomorrow.
