BYU got some more news on the QB front Monday morning, with head coach Kalani Sitake announcing that Beau Hoge will miss the final two games of the season with a toe injury. Hoge first suffered the injury in the Utah State game, and reaggravated it during the Fresno State game. Kalani’s explanation can be viewed below:
Here is the play that Hoge hurt his toe:

This game is brutal...a dang toe ruined my 2006 season and 2007 off season.
Kalani also confirmed that Beau suffered a concussion during the same Utah State game.

Joe Critchlow is the presumed starter after his solid showing versus UNLV, but true freshman Kody Wilstead may also play in the final two games. Wilstead has yet to play this year, causing most to assume that the coaches would preserve his redshirt with the season now almost over, but Kalani said he wouldn’t hesitate to put Wilstead in one of the final two games.
Sitake said that there will be no hesitation to play Kody Wilstead in final two games. Coaches are not even considering him a potential redshirt. Freshman wants to play, move through BYU in four years.— Jay Drew (@drewjay) November 13, 2017
After Critchow and Wilstead, Koy Detmer Jr is the 3rd-string QB.
BYU’s next game is Saturday in Provo versus UMass (3-7).
