Football update: Grayson re-injures clavicle; new face at running back

The Colorado State football team received some good news and some bad news over the weekend. Bad news first: quarterback Garrett Grayson re-injured his clavicle Friday morning.

Grayson first suffered a broken clavicle during the 2012 season, forcing him to miss over half of the season. Grayson required surgical attention after he injured his left shoulder moving a couch, according to a statement from the athletic department.

The quarterback threw for a CSU single-season record of 3,696 yards last season, and needs just 1,959 more to become the all-time passing leader. Grayson also received an invite to attend the Manning Passing Academy in March.

The prestigious camp for QBs begins July 10. Luckily, Grayson should be in full-form by then.

“The good news is that is is on his non-throwing side,” CSU head coach Jim McElwain said. “He’ll be back in action by the time we start out summer strength and conditioning program in June.”

The Rams will also be welcoming a new member to the team for the start of fall camp. Treyous Jarrells, a running back from Lake Mary, FL signed transfer papers to play at CSU.

Jarrells rushed for 1,139 yards and 15 touchdowns last season for Grossmont Junior College in El Cajon, Calif. As a senior in high school, he rushed for 1,048 yards and 14 touchdowns over just 8 games.

Jarrells also had offers from Alabama-Birmingham, Idaho State and South Alabama. He will now join the competition for starting running back in the absence of Kapri Bibbs and Donnell Alexander.
