Zach Collaros Injury Update: Surgery To Sideline Cincy QB Until Bowl Game

Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Zach Collaros will miss the rest of his senior regular season after suffering an ankle injury against the West Virginia Mountaineers. He'll require surgery, but could return for the team's bowl game.

Collaros took a hard fall during a sack in the second quarter.

His exit puts Cincy's BCS run in serious jeopardy. Coming into the WVU game, the Bearcats looked to be the Big East favorite. After losing a critical game and their quarterback, it's up to Munchie Legaux to rally the troops.

Collaros has 1,854 yards and 14 touchdowns to eight interceptions on the year. Legaux has seen minimal playing time this season, with 21 of his 28 attempts coming on Saturday.

Zach Collaros Injury: Cincinnati Quarterback 'Questionable' After Leg Injury

Zach Collaros has been one of the keys to the Cincinnati Bearcats being ranked No. 23 in the country, but the offense took a blow during the second quarter. Collaros was sacked, fumbled and -- worst of all -- underwent what looks like it might be an ugly leg injury that caused him to be carted off the field.

The play ended in a touchdown for the West Virginia Mountaineers following the fumble recovery, forcing the Bearcats to come back from a 17-7 deficit when the game resumes in the third quarter. Unfortunately, it seems as Collaros might not be available in the second half.

It was announced at the field, according to multiple media members, that Collaros "is under evaluation for a right leg injury and his return is questionable."

In place of Collaros is Munchie Legaux -- and no, that is not a spelling error.
