Childress ruled out of season finale

Childress ruled out of season finale

You would think with as little as he played that a medical redshirt will still be possible.
Check it out:

West Virginia Coach Dana Holgorsen will wait one more time to name the starting quarterback for Saturday’s season finale, but he did say at his weekly press conference Tuesday that redshirt freshman Ford Childress won’t play.

Childress, who started and set a freshman record with 359 passing yards in a win against Georgia State, was injured in his second start a week later against Maryland. Childress tore a pectoral muscle and hasn’t played since passing for 62 yards in a 37-0 loss Sept. 21, though he had been practicing before the Nov. 16 loss to Kansas.

The quarterback for the 4 p.m. game against Iowa State (Fox Sports 1) will be Clint Trickett or Paul Millard. Millard started and struggled in the 31-19 loss to Kansas in place of Trickett, who had started six consecutive games before he was knocked unconscious Nov. 9 against Texas and suffered a concussion.
