Hawaii quarterback Moniz being examined for concussion after taking hard hit

Hawaii quarterback Bryant Moniz was injured after taking a hard hit late in the third quarter of Thursday night's season opener against No. 14 Southern California.

Moniz, who was taken to the locker room and examined for a possible concussion, was replaced by backup Brent Rausch. Moniz's return was questionable.

He was hit by linebacker Michael Morgan after scrambling 13 yards to the USC 5 late with 2:38 left in the third. Moniz appeared woozy as he got up.

The junior was 18 of 36 for 269 yards and a touchdown. He also had 38 yards rushing.
