WSU Vs. EWU: Jeff Tuel Leaves With Leg Injury

Jeff Tuel has left the game with an apparent knee injury.

FROM PULLMAN - Well those people who were clamoring for backup quarterback Connor Halliday got their wish, although not in the way anyone would have wanted: Starting WSU quarterback Jeff Tuel was forced out of the game after suffering a leg injury at the conclusion of a pass play.

Tuel did leave the field under his own power, but he was limping badly as he made his way towards the sideline. It appeared to be his right knee, which is now wrapped with ice -- suggesting his day is over.

Halliday, who received a loud ovation from what's left of the sold-out crowd at Martin Stadium, replaced Tuel on 3rd and 16, and did what he does best: Try to whip a ball to Marquess Wilson into a small window between three defenders. It was a bit behind Wilson and fell incomplete.

Tuel was completing a lot of passes, but wasn't having the best of days, going 20 of 26 for 171 yards. He did throw a pair of touchdowns in the first half, but again appeared to be out of sync with his receivers.
