Another blow to Utah State this year

Reports and rumors have trickled out online that Utah State will be without starting quarterback Logan Bonner against rival BYU. He has suffered an apparent lower leg injury sometime this past week, likely against UNLV near the end of the game.

The school has not yet confirmed any injury to Bonner at this time. Utah State is likely keeping things quiet as college teams do to keep it under the vest.

ESPN’s Pete Thamel is reporting that Cooper Legas will get the start tonight.

Legas dad conifrms it.

All signs point to Bonner being out for a significant number of weeks and maybe even season-ending, but that is speculation at this point as no announcement has been made.

Bonner is in a boot.

This year has not been great for Bonner as he has taken a step back with six touchdowns to eight interceptions. He is completing just 56.4% of his passes through four games. All of last year, he had just 12 interceptions in 14 games and all of his per game numbers are down as well as Utah State is struggling with a 1-3 record.

Legas came on the scene last year in the LA Bowl where he took over for Bonner who suffered an ACL tear in that game. The first pass coming off the bench was a 62-yard bomb to wide receiver Deven Thompkins. For the game, Legas was 11 of 20 for 171 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

 

Legas has played in the Alabama and Weber State game, so he is not coming in extremely cold and with no experience. The coaches are high on the future with Legas and that looks to begin tonight as Utah State is on the road to face BYU for the Old Wagon Wheel.

The Aggies offense might just get a boost with a new quarterback under center in this game against the Cougars. A solid running game would be helpful for Legas and that will mean Calvin Tyler, Jr., will need to have a big game to help this Utah State.
