Carta-Samuels was having a decent game in the first half before the injury, completing 12-of-20 for 111 yards and an interception. Freshman quarterback Patton Robinette was forced into action as a result.
Entering the contest, Robinette had never thrown more than five passes in a game at the collegiate level.
Not only is that a major factor in the injury being an issue, Carta-Samuels was having a great year with over 1,500 yards passing and 10 touchdowns to six interceptions while completing 66 percent of his passes.
Should Carta-Samuels miss an extended period of time; the Commodores will find it difficult to become bowl eligible.
