Josh Allen‘s season took another hit on Saturday, as the Wyoming quarterback left the team’s 28-14 win at Air Force with a shoulder injury. On Monday, Allen’s mother, Lavonne, stated on Facebook that the signal caller suffered a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.

He will now undergo X-rays on Monday.

Allen became injured toward the end of the first half of Saturday’s game. He came out, re-entered to take a knee before the half ended and even started the second half. However, the pain was ultimately too much to play through. He came out after throwing just one pass in the second half, an incompletion that was underthrown. Allen was replaced by backup Nick Smith, who closed out the contest and lead Wyoming to its only touchdown in the second half of the game.

Wyoming hosts Fresno State this Saturday in its regular-season finale, but it is unclear if Allen, a California native, will be part of the action.

After nearly declaring for the NFL Draft last season, Allen came into this campaign as one of the top quarterback prospects in the country. The junior was voted the Mountain West preseason offensive player of the year in July. His stock has taken a bit of hit, though, and it is unclear where he could end up should he take part in the 2018 NFL Draft. Allen has thrown for 1,658 yards this season, adding 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. He has also rushed for 207 yards and five scores.
