Villanova Wildcats quarterback John Robertson had his left hand wrapped in ice during the post-game news conference following the 50-6 victory over the Fordham Rams, and Andy Talley said that though Robertson could play through the pain, he would be taken for precautionary X-rays to make sure the damage wasn't more severe.
This morning on the weekly CAA Coaches Teleconference, Talley revealed that Robertson has a crack in his non-throwing hand.
Talley - "Thank God for the Bye Week." Says Robertson will be ready to go, but did partly fracture non-throwing hand. #CAAFB— CAA Football (@CAAFootball) September 8, 2014
@Coach_Talley says John Robertson has slight crack in his left hand. Will be in cast— Terry Toohey (@TerryToohey) September 8, 2014
No word on whether that will be a soft or a hard cast for the junior quarterback - but expect Robertson to be wearing some form of protection on that hand while it continues to heal, and possibly even when he returns to the field. Most importantly though, Robertson has already been slated to start when the Wildcats' take the field in two weeks in their conference opener against the James Madison Dukes.
