MarQueis Gray missed a decent portion of last weekend's Minnesota Golden Gophers game and is expected to miss about a month of action, but that didn't stop the team from listing the starting quarterback as "questionable" on this week's injury report.
The goal earlier in the week was for Gray to be Max Shortell's backup and, even though he hasn't practiced this week, that would seem to be the case heading into Saturday's game if the questionable status is legitimate. According to 1500 ESPN, it seems as though that's the case:
As expected, Gophers quarterback MarQueis Gray has been listed as "questionable" on the team's weekly injury report to play on Saturday against Syracuse.
Gray is recovering from a knee and high ankle sprain suffered in the second quarter of the Gophers' victory over Western Michigan last Saturday. As of Wednesday, Gray had not run on his injured leg, but was able to do limited drills with the team's training staff.
Starting center Zach Mottla, linebacker Lamonte Edwards and offensive lineman Joe Bjorklund were also listed as questionable for this week while junior cornerback Martez Shabazz is out at least another week with a dislocated right toe.
