Boise State starting quarterback Joe Southwick injured his lower right leg on the first play of the game on offense for the Broncos Saturday night against Nevada.

Southwick scrambled for seven yards and was tackled near the east sideline with 7:40 left in the first quarter. Southwick left the field on crutches, not putting weight on his right leg, and appeared headed to the Idaho Sports Medicine Institute inside Broncos Stadium to be assessed. Junior backup quarterback Grant Hedrick replaced him. 

BSU trailed the Wolf Pack 3-0 at the time of Southwick's injury. He was later seen headed toward the locker room via motorized transportation.

CBS Sports sideline reporter Evan Washburn has reported that Southwick will not return to the game.
