Kansas State got some bad news Monday, and it has nothing to do with the K-State marching band embarrassing the school, the state, and marching bands in general with it's halftime show on Saturday. Head coach Bill Snyder announced that starting quarterback Jesse Ertz suffered a knee injury in the Wildcats' wim over South Dakota this past Saturday that will keep him out of action "for quite some time."


“Jesse is going to be out for quite some time,” Snyder said during his time on the Big 12 teleconference. “We will miss him. We feel badly about the loss and he will be there. He has been a wonderful individual for us, very representative of our value system, of our team and really developing as a leader.

“I am quite confident he will stay invested in what we are doing and will be very helpful to all of his teammates. We will move on.”

Snyder did not say exactly what Ertz's injuries were, but The Wichita Eagle suggests it could be ligament damage. 

Kansas St. QB Joe Hubener will replace Ertz in the starting role when the Wildcats face Texas-San Antonio this coming Saturday.
