MarQueis Gray Injured Again; Max Shortell Back At Quarterback

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have made another switch at the quarterback position due to injury.

In the first quarter of this afternoon's match-up against the Northwestern Wildcats, starting quarterback Max Shortell suffered an injury to his left arm on a running play, and that caused Jerry Kill's team to go back to MarQueis Gray at quarterback. Gray had seen some snaps at wide receiver earlier in the game, but was forced back behind center as a result.

With the Gophers driving in the third quarter, Gray was on a run towards the right sideline and was cut down by a Northwestern defender. He came down awkwardly on the same leg that caused him to miss a couple of games earlier on in the season, and the Gophers have gone back to Max Shortell at quarterback.

Gray's ankle is heavily taped, and it is unknown at this point whether or not he will be returning to this game. If he is unable to go and Shortell gets banged up again, the red shirt will likely come off of freshman Philip Nelson.

The third quarter has just come to an end at TCF Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail the Northwestern Wildcats by a score of 21-13.
