Big nasty defensive linemen, potential spears to the ribs, concussions and exploding knee are all things that quarterbacks have to be concerned about when it comes to injuries.
But a couch?
Colorado State Rams quarterback Garrett Grayson found out that the injury hazards aren’t only on the field, as he suffered an injury to his left clavicle while moving a couch, and had to undergo surgery.
According to a release from the team, Grayson’s surgery should not prevent him from participating in summer strength and conditioning workouts.
Grayson — who is a right-handed passer — suffered the injury to his left shoulder, which should be a relief to the Rams, who finished 8-6 in 2013 and beat Washington State 48-45 in last year’s New Mexico Bowl.
Grayson set a single-season passing record at CSU last year with 3,696 yards and tied the school record with 23 touchdown passes.
Note to NCAA: Include extra “moving expenses” in whatever changes you make to stipends made to scholarship players.
