The redshirt sophomore will be out at least three weeks, Carroll said. Sanchez hurt his right hand on a throw in Sunday night's scrimmage.
"It's tough news," Carroll said. "But in the meantime, Michael McDonald and Aaron Corp will get a lot more work at the backup spot."
All that Scott Wolf has to say (as of 9.30 p.m. Eastern) is that Sanchez "is not practicing and has a taped right thumb."
I was just chatting with Paragon and he's not convinced that it would be a three week recovery from a fracture - that apparently is the time frame associated with a bad sprain. He's going to check with some folks tomorrow and will post later in the day.
Programming note: Paragon will be off-line until later tomorrow, and I will be without internet access all day (the horror) for the next three days, so look for posts at random hours. Thanks for your understanding.
