Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson is likely out for the rest of the season with a broken clavicle

Colorado St. Rams starting quarterback Garrett Grayson left Saturday's 41-21 loss to the Air Force Falcons with a broken clavicle early in the fist quarter. Grayson suffered the injury when he kept the ball on an option run, and while trying to get the first down he was tackled by a pair of Air Force defenders.

Grayson did not return to the game, and the latest news is that the injury is a broken clavicle and that there is no timetable for his return. A broken clavicle usually takes about six weeks to recover from, and by then the Rams season is nearly over. There is talk about having Grayson apply for a medical redshirt since he has played in just over four games this year.

In the mean time Colorado State will be quarterbacked by senior M.J. McPeek. In his three-plus quarter of play against Air Force, McPeek played well by completing 22-of-34 passes for 292 yards, plus he threw a pair of touchdowns and interceptions. It looks like McPeek could be a solid replacement for the rest of the season, assuming he can continue that pace.
