USU QB Chuckie Keeton out 4-6 weeks with sprained knee

Utah State Aggies head coach Matt Wells announced today that quarterback Chuckie Keeton has a sprained knee and will miss four to six weeks of action. Steve Luhm of the Salt Lake Tribune reported Wells’ announcement on Twitter.

The loss of Keeton is a something of a rough blow for the Aggies, who stumbled out of the gate to a 1-2 start. Over that stretch, the senior from Houston completed 54.5 percent of his passes while throwing for 537 yards and two touchdowns, but also had five interceptions. Keeton also had 75 rushing yards this season.

It is also important to note that this is not the first time Keeton has had knee trouble. He missed all but three games last season with a knee injury, specifically to the one in which he tore the ACL and MCL in 2013. When Utah State takes on Colorado State following its bye week this weekend, sophomore Kent Myers will be under center.

Just what this means for Keeton remains to be seen. His knees clearly aren’t as durable as they once were, so perhaps his football career is over.

Regardless of what happens, Campus Sports will update Keeton’s status as any new information becomes available.
