McCummings to miss season with torn Achilles

Junior Scott McCummings will miss the season after tearing his left Achilles' tendon in practice.

McCummings has been used primarily as  a quarterback in the wildcat formation in the last two seasons but had been moved to wide receiver.

The news was posted on the UConn football official Twitter account about 30 minutes ago

QB-WR Scott McCummings tore his left Achilles tendon on Saturday in practice and is out for season..will have surgery this week #bleedblue

McCummings' move to receiver was perhaps the most noteworthy item to come out of the first day of preseason camp on Friday since McCummings was in the quarterback rotation during spring camp and even with the arrival of three freshman scholarship quarterbacks, he figured to be in the mix for the quarterback competition for the 2013 season.

McCummings already received a redshirt season so unless he is granted a rate sixth year of eligibility, he would have just one more year of eligibility for the Huskies.

McCummings has played in 24 games for UConn over the last two seasons. He completed 6 of 12 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns and has rushed 113 tackles for 417 yards and seven TDs.
