Minnesota State Moorhead starting quarterback Demetrius Carr has had his freshman season cut short.

Carr is expected to miss the rest of the season with a broken bone in his left foot. He is set to have surgery on Friday.

“It was pretty tough for me,” Carr said. “This will be the first season for me that I have missed since I started playing football.”

A true freshman, Carr passed for 369 yards in his college debut last Saturday at Augustana.

“It is especially tough on him,” Dragons head coach Steve Laqua said. “He had his hopes set high on what he could do in the coming weeks.”

Carr will likely be able to receive a medical redshirt and have four years of eligibility remaining, Laqua said.

The Dragons have their home opener at 1 p.m. Saturday against Southwest Minnesota State at Alex Nemzek Stadium. Sophomore quarterback Jake Hodge will start in place of Carr.

Laqua said he also expects sophomore running back Zayne Medhaug to miss at least a month with a knee injury.
