Army’s QB is M.I.A. during start of camp

A.J. Schurr left spring practice as Army’s projected starter at quarterback. As fall camp opened, Schurr was nowhere to be found.

According to HudsonValley.com’s Sal Interdonato, Schurr was not at practice Monday due to an undisclosed injury. Army head coach Jeff Monken didn’t elaborate on the situation other than to say Schurr won’t attend camp until he’s “healthy enough to practice.”

During Schurr’s first two seasons with the Black Knights, he played in 10 games, threw for 326 yards and rushed for 147 more. He’s expected to finally take over at quarterback, but he can’t when he’s not even at practice.

Schurr’s loss will likely be Angel Santiago’s gain. Santiago, a senior, started in 11 games last season. His experience will help Army as the team transitions under their new head coach.

Schurr wasn’t the only player missing from practice. Senior safety Geoff Bacon, who is a team captain, is in the same predicament as Schurr. With Bacon out of the lineup, sophomore Steven Johnson received first-team repetitions at free safety.

    That is a disgraceful headline.

    Especially considering he’s not missing, he’s injured. Brutally bad clickbait that I fell for. Gfy.

    Terrible headline, and Army’s coach is Jeff, not Todd.

    I completely agree.

    I believe, Brent, that an apology is warranted here. If CFT had any courage, you’d be MIA.

    Yeah a really cheesy headline. Well not cheesy, more like unnecessary.

    Regardless, another new coach for Army? And one that learned under Paul Johnson? Well Army appears to be taking the “If you can’t beat them, join them” motto to heart. Imitation is the truest form of flattery isn’t it? 10 year, or is it 11, losing streak to your arch rival (Navy) will do that I suppose.

    Sorry, its a 12 year losing streak. Its been so long I had to look it up. 12 years is a long time. It pains me to say, as a Navy fan and season ticket holder, but in the interest of the rivalry staying relevant on the national stage I am pulling for Army to win soon. Maybe they will now that Army finally realized the offense Navy runs works very well with service academy type players.

    Another “catchy” headline from CFT and its fellow sites.

    I would be angered but I have a ballpark figure of how little you make. It’s understandable of why the credibility is as high as Verne Troyer.

    I know your job is to drive clicks… but have at least a shred of journalistic integrity… Writing a headline about a member of a military academy being “MIA” isn’t funny, it isn’t catchy or witty.

    It reeks of desperation and is naïve at best.
