Redshirt appears likely for Casey Cochran

UConn football coach Paul Pasqualoni was not ready to come out and say that he would be redshirting former Masuk High quarterback Casey Cochran but admitted that a "hand grenade would have to go off" for Cochran to get into a game right now.

Cochran came into the season as a likely redshirt candidate but when he injured his left wrist when he fell off his bike during the summer, it became even less likely that the record-breaking passer would suit up for the Huskies in 2012. Cochran's recovery process has taken a little longer than anticipated.

"We thought Casey was going to get the cast off for the Maryland game but those x-rays didn’t come out the way we would have liked," Pasqualoni said. "It is a little longer process so that has pushed it into a week by week deal. We are going to evaluate it again this week. Casey is out there and he is going everything he can do, we just can’t give him hard snaps from center play after play. He can take a shotgun snap, he can throw the ball and do all of those things.

"He has not been 100 percent cleared at this point and we will evaluate it again this week and see how it is this week. He is still up and still in development. My sense is that we will keep him going that way. I don’t know if we would play him. A hand grenade would have to go off right now for us going into game six. We will see how he is at the  end of the week and we will see what kind of clearance we get. If he is not cleared 100 percent then we will start over again next week plastic cast."
