UCA quarterback Nathan Dick will not play Saturday vs. Arkansas State

CONWAY, AR (Log Cabin Democrat) - University of Central Arkansas quarterback Nathan Dick, a fifth-year senior and two-year starter, will not play in Saturday night's game against Arkansas State and his status beyond that is to be determined, UCA coach Clint Conque said at Monday's weekly Bearbacker luncheon.

Dick left Saturday's game against Sam Houston State late in the second quarter with a concussion from a late hit that drew a personal foul penalty. Conque said Dick had suffered a concussion the previous week against Louisiana Tech and did not practice last week until Thursday after receiving clearance from the medical staff.

Wynrick Smothers, a sophomore who has had spot duty the last two years, will start at quarterback against the Red Wolves, Conque said.
