Austyn Carta-Samuels out for Wyoming

Wyoming will be without starting quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels for its big game at No. 5 TCU on Saturday, making a tough challenge even harder.

Carta-Samuels is out with an unspecified injury, the school said Friday. The only information the school would release is that Carta-Samuels had an injury that was diagnosed during the week. It was hoped that he would improve during the week, but he was not cleared to play and did not make the trip.

Senior Dax Crum will start in his place. Crum has started five career games, all in 2008. He has appeared in two games this year against Texas and Boise State.

Carta-Samuels is the leader of the Cowboys offense. He is 71-of-109 for 803 yards with four touchdowns and five interceptions on the season. He had started 14 straight games.
