UConn beginning quarterback Joe Fagnano will miss the rest of the season after struggling a shoulder harm within the Huskies loss to Georgia State, coach Jim Mora introduced Tuesday.

Fagnano, a switch from Maine, was injured throughout a designed quarterback run within the second quarter of final Saturday’s 35-14 loss in Atlanta.

“It’s a reasonably important harm, we didn’t assume it was that important till they received an actual good take a look at it with the MRI, so Friday he’s scheduled for surgical procedure and he’s clearly fairly down about it,” Mora stated.

Ta’Quan Roberson, a switch from Penn State, will take over the beginning duties for UConn (0-2), which hosts FIU on Saturday.

Roberson accomplished 19 of 30 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns in aid of Fagnano on Saturday evening.

He returns to the beginning position he misplaced after struggling a season-ending knee harm in UConn’s opening sport a season in the past.

“Now this 12 months, the man forward of Ta’Quan will get harm and now Ta’Quan will get his likelihood once more. We’ve got loads of confidence in him and we’re actually dissatisfied for Joe,” Mora stated.

Zion Turner, a sophomore who began 12 video games for the Huskies final season, will function Roberson’s backup.
