App. State star sidelined by foot injury
Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards will miss up to four weeks with a right foot injury, ESPN said.
The three-time All-American was injured this week in a mowing accident at his off-campus residence in Boone, N.C.
We're all fortunate and grateful that Armanti wasn't more seriously injured, Coach Jerry Moore said.
He's demonstrated many times, (and) his toughness is second-to-none. I'm confident that he'll be back on the field with his teammates as soon as possible.
Edwards, a 6-foot-1 inch, 180-pound senior from Greenwood, S.C., is scheduled to graduate this December after 3Ã½ years.
He has led the Mountaineers to two Football Championship Series titles, and last season won the Walter Payton Award, given to the top offensive player in the FCS annually.
