New Mexico Quarterback Brad Gruner Knocked Out Carving a Pumpkin
New Mexico is 0-8 this season and unfortunately for the Lobos things aren’t getting any better. They’ve played four different quarterbacks this year but will be one shorter on their roster now. SI Hot Clicks shared the story with us about quarterback Brad Gruner who is done for the season after requiring season-ending surgery on his throwing hand. How did the injury occur you ask? He sliced his pinkie carving a pumpkin. Gotta love Halloween.
New Mexico not only has Gruner out for the year, but true freshman Tarean Austin has a bad ankle and B.R. Holbrook hurt his shoulder against Colorado State. The Lobos will likely be in position to start true freshman Stump Godfrey (great name) against Wyoming. They’ll need a big game out of Stump because this could be their last chance for a win. After the home game against Wyoming, they’re at Air Force, at BYU, and home against TCU to finish out the season. If they don’t win this weekend, they could be in worse shape than New Mexico State.
