The Minnesota Gophers Football team won their third game of the season today defeating the Broncos from Western Michigan.
The Gophers defeated the Broncos by a 28-23 margin at TCF bank stadium with help from second string quarterback Max Shortell after starter MarQueis Gray left the game at the end of the first half.
The Star Tribune reported that Gray left the game with 4:20 remaining in the first half, spending the rest of the game on crutches with a suspected high-ankle sprain.
The Minnesota Daily reported that Gray plans to have an MRI and that it is likely that the Minnesota starter will miss at least month.
Even though the Gophers lost their promising senior quarterback, the backup Max Shortell put on a strong and reassuring performance passing for 188 yards and three touchdowns, the Minnesota Daily Reported.
Minnesota will rely on Shortell to carry them through the next few games until Gray is able to return to the field.
