Louisiana State's Mauck Is Sidelined Indefinitely

October 17, 2002|From Times Wire Services

Louisiana State quarterback Matt Mauck will be out indefinitely after injuring his right foot in the 14th-ranked Tigers' victory over Florida on Saturday.

Mauck, who has guided the Tigers to five consecutive victories after an opening loss to Virginia Tech, was injured with 7 1/2 minutes remaining and the Tigers leading, 36-7.

"The evaluation on Tuesday showed he has a significant injury to the mid-foot," team doctor Brent Bankston said Wednesday. "At this time, he will be out indefinitely and will undergo further testing to determine if surgery is necessary."

Marcus Randall will start at quarterback for the Tigers on Saturday against South Carolina. Randall has appeared in four games and is four-of-eight passing for 33 yards.
