MISSOULA — Montana is back home this weekend after a tough road loss to a solid Sacramento State team. Not only will the Griz be looking to get back in the win column on Saturday, but they may be doing so without a key piece of their offense, as well.
Starting quarterback Dalton Sneed went down in the third quarter of Saturday's game with an ankle injury. Sneed was out the rest of game, watching from the sideline on crutches as Montana suffered a 49-22 loss.
In his weekly press conference on Monday, head coach Bobby Hauck said he didn't think Sneed would play this weekend.
"I have some doubts that we will have him for Saturday. He won't practice (Monday), he won't practice (Tuesday) and then we will see," said Hauck.
Whether Sneed plays on Saturday or not, Hauck is confident in backup Cam Humphrey.
"He's like all the guys that we recruit, he runs it pretty well, throws it, he's got good arm strength. He's a smart guy like everybody in that room. As I said, we don't know if we'll have Dalton, I'm doubtful we will, but we are confident in Cams' ability," said Hauck.
The Grizzlies (5-2) return home in Week 9 as they host the Eastern Washington Eagles (3-4) Saturday, Oct. 26.
