Now Cherry is out 10-12 weeks with a broken right foot, sources told CBSSports.com. Montana coach Wayne Tinkle wasn't allowed to talk about the specifics of the injury, but CBSSports.com was informed that it occurred this past weekend in a pickup game.The injury and timeframe was confirmed by Yahoo's Jeff Eisenberg.
We will get deeper into what this means for Montana in the future on the blog, but for now it looks like Keron DeShields or Jordan Gregory is likely to get the start in place of Cherry.
The bottom line is this... if Cherry is back for conference season, and back at full strength, this might wind up benefiting Montana in the long run, because it will give Gregory/DeShields extra experience. However, if the injury lingers, or causes Cherry to be anywhere less than 100%, this will be bad news for Montana.
