University of Tennessee at Chattanooga quarterback Jare Gault will likely go through limited workouts in practice Wednesday due to a quad contusion suffered on Tuesday, Mocs coach Rodney Allison said during his weekly media luncheon.
The Mocs aren’t doing much hitting of any kind in practice — and all the quarterbacks wear red, no-contact jerseys — but accidents do happen and Gault took the hit to the thigh when offensive lineman Bryce Garcia fell into him.
Gault got up after the play grimacing, but was quickly back on the field practicing. It was only after practice that the leg really began to bother him, Allison said.
Allison said he still expects Gault to start Saturday’s game against Georgia Southern, but said he’d know a lot more about where things stood after practice Wednesday.
