Coastal Carolina QB sidelined with foot injury

Conway, SC ( - Starting quarterback Alex Ross of unbeaten Coastal Carolina will miss Saturday's game against VMI because of a foot injury.

Coastal offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude told the Sun News of Myrtle Beach the injury is a "mild sprain."

Ross has completed 64.8 percent of his passes for 1,571 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions this season.

Against VMI (1-6), the sixth-ranked Chanticleers are expected to start either sophomore Michael Church, redshirt freshman Dalton Demos or graduate student Brian Kass, the starter at Wofford last year, at quarterback.
