It was not a good weekend to be a Fresno State quarterback.
According to the Fresno Bee, freshman Chason Virgil is out for the season due to a broken clavicle. To make matters worse for the Bulldogs, sophomore Zack Greenlee was arrested for public intoxication early Sunday morning.
Greenlee, who started the first two games of the season for Fresno, was released from custody around 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Bulldogs head coach Tim DeRuyter said discipline would be handled “internally” and did not say if Greenlee would be available for the team’s Mountain West opener at San Jose State.
“He will practice this week and Saturday we’ll make another announcement on it,” DeRuyter said, per the Bee.
Virgil made his first collegiate start over the weekend against Utah – a 45-24 loss – but was injured in the fourth quarter. DeRuyter said the program will pursue a medical redshirt for Virgil, who finishes his freshman season with 298 passing yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.
Greenlee beat Virgil out for the starting role to begin the season and has thrown for 313 yards, six touchdowns and one interception on the season, but has completed only 50 percent of his passes.
Greenlee completed 6-of-10 passes for 144 yards and three touchdowns against the Utes.
If DeRuyter opts to suspend Greenlee for Saturday’s game, the Bulldogs also have West Virginia transfer Ford Childress on the roster. Childress, a redshirt junior, started two games for the Mountaineers in 2013 and threw for 427 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. He spent the 2014 season redshirting at Trinity Valley Junior College (Texas) before landing at FSU.
The Bulldogs dropped to 1-2 with the loss to Utah.
