School sources have confirmed that quarterback Tago Smith will miss the remainder of the 2016 College Football with an torn ACL in his knee.
Tago Smith tore his ACL this past Saturday when Navy blew out Fordham 52-16. Replacing quarterback Tago Smith was Malcom Perry, a cadet who was actually in the stands watching his teammates play. Navy called upon Perry from the stands to suite up and get ready to play in the second half of the game in replacement. In relief for Smith, Malcom Perry took over totaling 7 carriers for 30 yards.
This was Tago Smith’s big time to get into the spotlight after spending years behind quarterback Keenan Reynolds. Tago Smith’s injury this early allows him to red-shirt and allow him to be eligible to play in 2017 when he is healthy.
As for the remainder of the season, Navy has not yet announced if Malcom Perry is to takeover or if Will Worth will be the starter for next week’s game vs. UConn.
