Cajuns Quarterback Blaine Gautier Breaks Bones in Hand, Out at Least 4 Weeks
The good news out of Cajun Field on Saturday was the 48-20 whooping the Ragin’ Cajuns put on Florida International. The bad news? Starting quarterback Blaine Gautier broke two bones in his throwing hand and will have surgery this week to insert pins in his hand.
Gautier was injured in the first half when he was hit hard by FIU defensive lineman Andre Pound. The blow also appeared to be late but no penalty was called on the play.
Sophomore Terrance Broadway filled in the rest of the game and performed quite admirably as he threw for 228 yards with one TD pass. He added two rushing touchdowns.
According to UL head coach Mark Hudspeth, Gautier will be out at least four weeks but he may not be able to throw until late in the season or perhaps a potential bowl game.
