Mountaineers' Edwards Iffy For East Carolina

BOONE, N.C. (AP) -- Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore says quarterback Armanti Edwards is unlikely to play in the Mountaineers' opener against East Carolina.

In a teleconference Wednesday, Edwards also was pessimistic about playing Saturday in his return from injuries to his right foot from a lawnmower accident last month.

Edwards returned to practice this week, but he has yet to go full speed or take the majority of the reps. Moore said on Tuesday that it's "really doubtful" that Edwards will be ready to face the Pirates.

The elusive 6-footer burst onto the national scene in 2007 when he led the Mountaineers to an upset of Michigan. Last year he won the Walter Payton Award as the top player in the Football Championship Subdivision.
