Locker left the field after misfiring on a pass intended for D'Andre Goodwin with about 6 minutes left in the quarter. The quarterback immediately walked to the sideline and soon was headed back to the Huskies locker room, looking down at his right hand.
X-rays revealed the injury, and he came back out to the field early in the third quarter wearing sweats and with his right hand wrapped.
Coach Tyrone Willingham said at halftime that he believed Locker was injured throwing a block on a 27-yard reverse to Jordan Polk two plays before Locker left the field.
Ronnie Fouch took over for Locker. Locker was 5-for-9 passing for 51 yards, and had 10 carries for 17 yards before leaving.
