Updated 7:54 p.m. ET: MarQueis Gray told Minnesota coach Jerry Kill after the Gophers’ 28-23 win over Western Michigan that he has a high ankle sprain. The length Gray will be out with the injury is unknown.
Oklahoma State isn’t the only team with an injured quarterback. Minnesota senior quarterback MarQueis Gray left Saturday’s game against Western Michigan with an apparent left ankle injury in the second quarter and will not return.
Gray was taken off the field on a cart for further examination and was replaced by sophomore Max Shortell. He later re-emerged on the sidelines on crutches.
Shortell has played well in Gray’s absence, throwing for three touchdowns in what is now a 28-17 lead over WMU.
