Hawaii QB Colt Brennan knocked out of game

HONOLULU -- Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan walked off the field on his own power after taking a hard hit with 52 seconds left in the first half against Utah State on Saturday night.

Brennan completed a short pass when he was drilled by linebacker Paul Igboeli. Brennan, recovering from a right ankle injury he suffered three weeks ago, laid on the field for a few minutes before slowly getting up walking gingerly off the field.

The 15th-ranked Warriors were leading 24-14 when Brennan was replaced by backup Tyler Graunke.

Brennan, ranked second in the nation in passing, returned to play one series in the third quarter before limping off the field and being replaced again by Graunke.

The Rainbow Warriors went on to win the game 52-37 and the teams played over the total which was set at 68.

This is a reagravated sprain that he got in between La Tech and the UNLV game. Prior to the reinjury, he looked sharp doing what he does best, complete passes. There is a bit of good news for Hawaii backers though. Graunke who was booed by some fans at home in his only start this season played as if the starting job were his all along. He was 7-7 with 3 TDs before I lost my connection to the game. He went on to be 9-11 for over 250 yards before being pulled so that the 3rd string QB (FUNAKI) could get some playing time.
