Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton will miss the remainder of the 2014 season due to a knee injury. Keeton suffered a torn ACL in 2013 and returned in time for the 2014 opener but injured his knee again versus Wake Forest on Sept. 13.

With Keeton sidelined, Utah State will turn to sophomore Darell Garretson under center. The sophomore started seven games in 2013 and threw for 1,436 yards and 10 scores.

Keeton’s status for 2015 is uncertain, as there’s a possibility he can get a medical redshirt and return next year. Or Keeton may choose to go to the NFL – assuming he’s 100 percent.

Keeton was one of the nation’s top quarterbacks from outside of the Power 5 conferences and is a huge loss for Utah State. Garretson has experience, but he is not as mobile as Keeton was throughout his career.
