Tanney Injury Confirmed

By Kelsey Beshears.

Monmouth, IL - Monmouth College football coach Stephan Bell confirmed today that All American quarterback Alex Tanney received a serious injury to his right shoulder in Saturday’s game against Grinnel. Bell said Tanney was injured when he was hit by a defender after throwing a pass in the first quarter. “He spun around and the defender landed on him.” Bell said he is out indefinitely, which means there might be a slight chance he could come back for another game later in the season, but they are taking it day by day. His position will be filled by Brik Wedekind who is a Freshman from Princeton, IL. Coach Bell said of Wedekind "He did a good job. After the first couple series he got comfortable and did well. The more (playing time) he gets the better he will become."
