UConn fears QB Ta’Quan Roberson has torn ACL; WR Keelan Marion suffered broken collarbone in loss at Utah State

·1 min read

Preliminary indications are that UConn quarterback Ta’Quan Roberson suffered a torn ACL in the season opener against Utah State, though an MRI had not yet been done, according to head coach Jim Mora.

Roberson exited UConn’s season opener in the first quarter of the Huskies’ 31-20 loss to Utah State. Before the injury, he had completed 1 of 2 passes for 10 yards and rushed for a touchdown.

Mora said an on-field examination indicated Roberson’s injury was a torn ACL, but said “we’re going to keep our fingers crossed” until the MRI results come in.

Mora also confirmed that wide receiver Keelan Marion has a broken collarbone and will undergo surgery sometime early this week.

“It’s a long injury and it’s a bone healing so there’s not a lot he can do in terms of treatment to recover from that,” Mora said. “Hopefully he’ll make it back at some point this season.”

Marion also scored a touchdown before going down with the injury, hauling in a 13-yard pass that was his only reception of the game.
