Cal Poly’s starting quarterback Anthony Garnett, who left Saturday’s game against Montana injured, will receive an MRI tomorrow.

Garnett threw for 210 yards and two touchdowns against the Grizzlies, but sustained an injury to his knee in the last 30 seconds of play that took him out of the game.

The MRI will find the extent of the injury, but Garnett will most likely not play in Cal Poly’s game against UC Davis Saturday, coach Rich Ellerson said.

“I assume he is going to be out,” Ellerson said of his starting quarterback at a press conference Monday.

Garnett, who took the starting position five games into last season, has thrown for 1,028 yards and seven touchdowns, and ran for seven touchdowns this season.

The Mustangs’ backup quarterback is freshman Matt Brennan who entered Saturday’s game against Montana after Garnett’s injury and did not complete his only pass attempt.
