Denton, TX (Denton Record-Chronicle) - UNT just found out this morning that Riley Dodge has a broken wrist on his non-throwing arm. Todd Dodge talked about the injury on the conference call.
Riley will see a doctor today. That will determine his status for the rest of the season.
Dodge was injured during the Mean Green's loss to Louisiana-Lafayette. His arm started to swell after the game and continued to get worse on Sunday.
UNT's team doctors decided to take a closer look at his arm this morning and took X-rays and an MRI. They confirmed what UNT suspected, that Riley's arm is broken.
Basically, it comes down to if doctors decide to put a screw in his wrist or just put a cast on it. If Riley has surgery, that will likely put him out for at least this week, possibly longer. If UNT can just put a cast on his wrist, then he might be able to play.
It seems likely that UNT will have to turn to its fourth-string quarterback in Chase Baine.
Dodge said that UNT won't change its offense if it has to go to Baine.
