It was an ugly end to the season for Morgan Newton and it’s not getting any prettier going into the spring. Newton will miss 4-6 months after having shoulder surgery on a torn labrum this morning. The injury tells us a little bit more about the quarterback situation in the final five weeks of the season. I’ve been told Morgan was upset with his head coach because Joker was downplaying the injury. Joker would tell the media, “Newton is getting better” and “He’s taking more reps in practice” when really he should’ve just been declared out for the season. This almost made it seem like a “beat up” Newton was getting beat out for his starting job at quarterback.
With an experienced Max Smith and incoming freshman Patrick Towles fighting him for the starting job under center, Newton could be mulling over a transfer before his final season.
We wish him the best in recovery and would love to see him back in blue.
