ULM QB Kolton Browning likely out for year with torn quad muscle


Louisiana-Monroe quarterback Kolton Browning will likely miss the rest of the season due to a torn quad muscle suffered against Tulane this past Saturday.

Browning played through quad pain through the first four games of the year but finally went down for good in the third quarter of ULM’s 31-14 loss to the Green Wave.

“He’s out,” ULM head coach Todd Berry said. “Right now I would say – could he be back at some point in time? Doubtful.”

Berry also added that a sixth year of eligibility is unlikely for the fifth-year senior, who has 9,052 passing yards and 67 touchdown passes in his career.

The reins of ULM’s offense will now be handed over to redshirt sophomore Brayle Brown, who will get his first collegiate start Thursday when the Warhawks open Sun Belt play against Western Kentucky. Berry also mentioned that he will burn true freshman Brian Williams redshirt so he can fill the role of the No. 2 quarterback behind Brown, who is 14 of 28 for 167 yards and one touchdown (with three interceptions) so far this season.
