Utah St. QB Chuckie Keeton likely done for year after reinjuring knee

Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton will likely miss the rest of the season after injuring his surgically repaired left knee.

Keeton missed most of last season after tearing two knee ligaments in a game against BYU.

This season, Keeton was injured in a victory over Wake Forest on Sept. 13 and missed the Aggies' loss to Arkansas State a week later. Darell Garretson, a sophomore, started against Arkansas State and threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns.

"Chuckie's health is our top priority and he has not been cleared to play by our medical staff," Utah State coach Matt Wells said. "We will continue to monitor his progress throughout the fall, but given his current condition it is unlikely that he will play in any games in the foreseeable future."

Utah State plays at No. 18 BYU on Friday night.

Keeton, a senior, could apply for a medical redshirt and return to Utah State for another season. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder from Houston could also enter the NFL draft.

For his career, Keeton is second in Utah State history in touchdown passes (58) and completions (568) and third in yards passing (6,387).
