The Cajuns were cautiously optimistic about the status of left tackle Mykhael Quave after he was injured late on an extra-point attempt against Arkansas State.
They received the official good news Friday.
Results came back negative on Quave’s injured right knee, according to a text message from a team representative, meaning he did not sustain a significant injury. Quave’s knee will still likely take some time to feel 100 percent, as Hudspeth intimated Thursday that he may have suffered a “bone bruise,” but he probably won’t miss any time.
The Cajuns took exception to how Quave sustained his injury. Arkansas State cornerback Frankie Jackson, a high school teammate of quarterback Terrance Broadway’s, went low on Quave on the extra point attempt.
There was less than a minute left in a game that was well in hand, and the Cajuns thought the low hit on Quave was unnecessary.
Quave was on crutches after the game, but with a 10-day break between Tuesday’s win and next Saturday’s home game against South Alabama, the Cajuns anticipate he’ll be ready to play.
