 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -Air Force quarterback Shaun Carney left the Armed Forces Bowl on Monday after his right knee buckled awkwardly when he was tackled late in the third quarter.
Carney was running right on a keeper when he was hit head-on by two California defenders. But he was also hit from the side by another defender and the impact of that bent Carney's leg.
Air Force officials said Carney had a sprained right knee and wouldn't return. Shea Smith took over at quarterback.
Carney, a four-year starter for the Falcons, immediately grabbed his right knee while still on the ground. After being tended to on the field by medical personnel, Carney was helped off the field and didn't put any weight on his right leg.
Television replays showed that Carney's knee buckled when he was hit by defensive back Syd'Quan Thompson from the side, on what appeared to be a clean tackle.
Carney had 15 carries for 108 yards and a touchdown, and was 5-of-8 passing for 68 yards and a score.
