Ball State QB Wenning (knee surgery) expected back for opener
Ball State starting quarterback Keith Wenning underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and will be out an undisclosed amount of time.
Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning is out, at least for the time being, after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.
Cardinals coach Pete Lembo described the procedure as minor -- a quick fix for a knee issue that was "annoying" Wenning -- and told reporters the senior starter would be available for the season opener against Illinois State.
"We fully expect he will be back on the practice field in a relatively short time and ready to go for the season opener Aug. 29," Lembo said. "In the meatime, we will be able to get a very thorough evaluation of our backup quarterbacks who are competing well so far this preseason."
Wenning was a 2nd team All-MAC selection in 2012 after passing for 3,095 yards and 24 touchdowns on the way to a 9-4 finish for the Cardinals. The three-year starter ranks second on the school's career list for both passing yards (7,254) and passing touchdowns (57). Wenning already holds the school records for completions (716) and attempts (1,144).
