MOULTRIE – Steven Krajewski completed 22-of-33 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns in UConn’s 56-21 loss to Central Florida last Saturday in Orlando, but he also suffered an injury in the game and will be out 6-8 weeks.
Coach Randy Edsall had announced the redshirt freshman Krajewski would be UConn’s starting quarterback. The coach then took to Twitter to reveal that Krajewski suffered a broken clavicle in the first quarter against UCF and will require 6-8 weeks to recover from surgery.
“Steven Krajewski will be out for @UConnFootball the next 6 to 8 weeks, due to a fractured clavicle,” Coach Randy Edsall tweeted at 3:33 p.m. Monday. “Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. Mike Beaudry will be the starter and Jack Zergiotis will be the backup.”
The Huskies fell to 1-3 and will be home to face South Florida on Saturday.
