To anyone who was questioning why Stanford star Christian McCaffrey would sit out of the team’s exhibition game in the Sun Bowl on Friday night, Cardinal quarterback Keller Chryst unfortunately put things into perspective.
After being carted off in the first half of the team’s win over North Carolina, it is being reported that Chryst is believed to have suffered a torn ACL.
Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports reported the news:
Stanford QB Keller Chryst is believed to have suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in the Cardinal’s Sun Bowl win over North Carolina on Friday, a source told FOX Sports.
The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder was carted off the field in the first half after planting his leg in the turf. He had thrown a TD pass earlier in the game.
Chryst, a junior from Palo Alto, threw for 905 yards, ten touchdowns and two interceptions in 2016. He was 6-0 as a starter.
