The news on Christian Chapman’s left knee isn’t good, exactly, but it’s not as bad as initially feared.
This projected timeline for Chapman’s recovery means that at the very least, it will be the Ryan Agnew show for games against Arizona State and Eastern Michigan. Chapman could possibly return after the bye to face Boise State on the Avatar turf, though that seems like a tough scenario to drop a rusty, hobbled QB into the middle of.
Honestly, the way Chapman writhed in agony after being hit low in the second quarter against Sacramento State, I was expecting a season-ending ligament tear. So the fact that he should be back for a division title run is a positive development.
