Montana's leading rusher out with ankle injury
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — The Montana football team will be without its leading rusher this weekend after Dan Moore suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter of last weekend's game at Eastern Washington.
Coach Mick Delaney says Moore suffered a high ankle sprain after earlier breaking a small bone in the same foot.
Moore is the fourth-leading rusher in the Big Sky Conference with 431 yards in five games, despite missing most of the game at EWU.
Delaney says Peter Nguyen (win) and Jordan Canada will get most of the carries on Saturday at Northern Colorado. They combined for 286 yards rushing at EWU.
Montana, which has a 2-3 overall record, is looking for its first league win of the season on Saturday after falling to Northern Arizona and Eastern Washington.
