Lorenzen has fracture

UConn senior quarterback Tyler Lorenzen will be out for several weeks after suffering a broken right foot in the second quarter during Friday night's game at Louisville.

Lorenzen headed to the locker room after Donald Brown’s touchdown run in the second quarter, which gave the Huskies a 10-0 lead with 9:23 remaining in the half. X-rays later revealed a fracture. Lorenzen is expected to be out at least six weeks, though no official determination on the amount of time the injury will require had been released.

Zach Frazer, a sophomore transfer from Notre Dame, took over for UConn after Lorenzen left. The action was the first of his college career. Frazer had been the Huskies' third-string quarterback through the first four games before being promoted to backup earlier in the week. Redshirt freshman Cody Endres is the Huskies' third quarterback.

Lorenzen, in his second season at UConn after transferring from Palomar CC in southern California in January 2007, was 13-4 in his career with the Huskies heading into Friday's game. The left-hander's strengths were in his leadership and running ability.
