Alex Carder To Miss Saturday's Game Vs. Toledo

Youch. MLive reports that Western Michigan senior quarterback Alex Carder won't play against Toledo this Saturday after injuring his throwing hand. On the follow through, his hand struck a UConn player's helmet.

Tyler VanTubbergen will start in his place and you remember how well he torched Akron last year. He also took the remaining snaps in the UConn game after Carder exited the game in the third quarter.

Carder LOVES playing the Rockets, even he doesn't beat them, but in his senior year he'll miss it. Last year he threw for 548 yards and seven touchdowns in that 66-63 Tuesday night thriller. But he's 0-2 in his career against the midnight blue and gold. But TVT is a very capable backup QB, perhaps one of the tops in the conference. So the passing game oughta be alright.
