Colorado State is going to be down a quarterback this season after junior Matt Valecce suffered a season-ending injury, Rams head coach Steve Addazio said Saturday.
Valecce, who transferred from Boston College in April, suffered a “lower-body injury” in practice earlier in the week, Addazio told The Coloradan, who were first to report the story.
“We have to worry about our backup quarterback situation right now,” Addazio told CSURams.com. “We’ve got to come up with a backup quarterback, and that got a little distractful today.”
The 6-foot-5, 225-pound quarterback was a member of Addazio’s Eagles roster from 2018-19. Coming out of high school, he was a top-rated quarterback out of New York by 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN. He has appeared in six games, completing 3 of 7 passes for 27 yards.
The injury is a hit to CSU’s quarterback depth behind starter Todd Centeio, a redshirt senior. The Rams have three other quarterbacks on the roster: redshirt sophomore Jonah O’Brien and true freshmen Evan Olaes and Giles Pooler.
