Jeff Traylor, UTSA coach, shares injury update on QB Frank Harris ahead of Tennessee game
Tennessee will host UTSA at Neyland Stadium on Saturday. The Roadrunners feature one of the best quarterbacks in the Group of 5 in Frank Harris, who threw for over 4,000 yards and 32 touchdowns vs. just 9 interceptions while running for 602 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2022.
Harris’s 2023 season has gotten off to a bit of a slower start, though, as he’s averaged just 211.5 yards passing through 2 games and has thrown just 2 touchdowns versus 3 interceptions. All 3 of those INTs came against Houston, just the 2nd time in his career he’s tossed more than 2 picks in a single game.
Harris was absent from the Roadrunners’ 37-29 loss to Army on Friday. And his status is up in the air for the game against the Volunteers as he is “day-to-day with turf toe,” UTSA head coach Jeff Traylor told ESPN’s Pete Thamel on Monday night.
If Harris is unavailable, Eddie Lee Marburger will get the call. Marburger, a redshirt sophomore, threw for 3 touchdowns and 239 yards against Army on Friday.
Kickoff from Neyland Stadium is set for 4 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.
