Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Without QB Ben Wooldridge 4-6 Weeks
The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns certainly hope quarterback Zeon Chriss can play the way he did Saturday night after coming in for injured starter Ben Wooldridge against UAB. That’s because Head Coach Mike Desormeaux announced on Monday, while Wooldridge won’t need surgery, he is out for the foreseeable future. Desormeaux did put a 4-6 week timetable on Wooldridge’s injury.
In two games this season, Wooldridge was completing 61% with five touchdown passes with only one interception.
After injuring his knee in practice last November, Wooldridge recovered from surgery quick enough to be cleared in mid-July and was deemed the starting quarterback by Desormeaux just prior to fall camp.
Chriss was outstanding in relief of Wooldridge against the Blazers. He was 14-20, for 171 yards and one passing touchdown. That was complimented by his 103 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, including an 80-yard run, following a Tyler Guidry interception in the end zone.
The Cajuns improved to 2-1 and will welcome in the 0-3 Buffalo Bulls Saturday afternoon to Cajun Field. Kickoff is at 6:30P with the pre-game show on 103.3 The GOAT beginning at 4:30P
