Imagine a scenario where a 300-pound lineman lines up at quarterback.
While that is highly unlikely, Kansas State is preparing for the worst after the Wildcats' lost its fourth quarterback of the season to a possible concussion in Saturday's 36-34 loss to Oklahoma State. After wide receiver Kody Cook replaced injured Joe Hubener at quarterback, a few lineman took snaps at quarterback in practice this week, just in case.
Bill Snyder jokes Will Geary is currently practicing as the 7th string QB.— Kellis Robinett (@KellisRobinett) October 6, 2015
Dalton Risner also volunteered to play QB, just in case Will Geary doesn't pan out.— Kellis Robinett (@KellisRobinett) October 6, 2015
Geary is a 6-foot, 297-pound defensive lineman and Risner is a 6-foot-5-inch, 300-pound center. Neither are excepted to actually see time at quarterback, as Hubener is slated to play this weekend with redshirt freshman Zach Davidson pegged as the back-up, but with the Wildcats' quarterback depth dwindling by the week, it's better to be safe than sorry, especially in college football.
