Web Exclusive: Kennedy banged up, looking forward to bye week

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - It wasn't very hard for the untrained eye to tell that Arkansas State quarterback Adam Kennedy was banged up on Saturday night against Missouri.

Between a rough night at Memphis two weeks ago to several sacks again in Columbia this week, the Senior Quarterback has taken his fair share of licks and is looking forward to the off week.

Kennedy was noticed on the sideline during the game on Saturday getting a finger on his throwing looked at by the training staff. "He just had a little bump, he's okay,' Harsin said when asked about it after the game, "Look, he got hit about everywhere he could get hit tonight."

But as for the QB himself, he was a little more honest about the situation, "I ended up tearing the tendon in my pinkie, " said Kennedy, "that's why it's curved, so we taped it up so it didn't hurt as much."

The good news is, it appears as though the injury won't be hampering Kennedy too much, "I mean it hurt but it doesn't affect my throwing."

Kennedy won't miss any time with the injury apparently but there's no doubt a bye week before facing Idaho on October 12th will help him heal up, "After these last two weeks it's definitely much needed especially headed into conference play," Kennedy said.

With time to rest and adjust, things should come out in full force for Arkansas State and Adam Kennedy when they face a 1-4 Idaho Vandals team.
