Injury sidelines Graham Stewart

Former Xavier High star and University of Florida transfer Graham Stewart will miss the upcoming season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle.

UConn was in the process of applying for an NCAA waiver allowing the linebacker to play this season when Stewart suffered the injury during a July 23 workout. He underwent surgery on July 27 and with Stewart being sidelined UConn never completed the paper work since he would have had to sit out the season due to the injury.

Stewart, a Durham native, played in 12 games and had one tackle and returned a blocked punt 14 yards for a score in the Gator Bowl as a true freshman at Florida in 2011. The linebacker will have three years of eligibility remaining.
