Keenum unsure of next move

08:49 AM ET 09.29 | Case Keenum doesn't know what the future holds. Keenum is hobbling around on crutches, unable to continue his duties as the Houston Cougars' starting quarterback and unofficial coach on the field. The senior season for which Keenum sweated and sacrificed so much ended abruptly when he blew out his right knee in the third game. Dr. Walter R. Lowe -- the team physician of the Cougars, Texans and Rockets -- will perform reconstructive surgery on Keenum today to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Unless Keenum receives a special medical hardship waiver from the NCAA, he has played his final college game. Given the timing of the injury, Keenum will be hard-pressed to put his best foot forward for prospective NFL teams before next April's draft.

I would suggest his next move be away from the baseball threads...

I was thinking the same thing, at first. Only thing that I can think of is it has something with the mention of doctorsfrom the NCAA, pro football and basketball teams, so the only logical thing to do would be to put this in the baseball area.

Sad to see this. I didn't think Houston was a great team and I'm not a big fan of theirs, but I hope he gets a redshirt for this and plays again.

Was he looking at breaking the NCAA passing yard record? If he gets a medical RS, thet record will fall big time.

Yes, he was about 3500 yards and 28 TD from having both career records. Very tough break for him.

He has one of the best doctors in the country performing the surgery. Hopefully they will let him redshirt and get another shot at the records. If not some pro team will take a shot at him.

They might get a gem for cheap. I hear the Bucs need a QB.

If Keenum and Houston are successful at getting Case a medical Redshirt and the knee is healthy he could probally break a few passing records upon his return.
Don't know though how much success Case Keenum will end up having if his next stop is the NFL (if the medical Redshirt doesn't work out, since Houston Cougar QBs have not fared well in the NFL.
