Western Kentucky redshirt senior QB Nelson Fishback will be out 4-6 months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle.
An early October return is likely the best that Fishback can hope for, here. More pessimistically, he could also miss the entire regular season if his rehab extends into that six-month range. In a statement, HC Jeff Brohm called it "extremely disappointing" for the 6-foot-2, 216-pounder. "He has worked hard to put himself in this position and is a young man who does all of the things you would want out of your quarterback," Brohm said. "Nelson has always been the kind of teammate you want to have inside and outside of the locker room." Fishback and redshirt junior Mike White (a transfer from USF) took the majority of first-team reps this spring and this is likely White's job to lose with Fishback suffering from the injury bug.
