Georgia State Football: Ben McLane Will Start Against Richmond If Cleared By Team Doctors

After injuring his left arm during a loss to the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners, Georgia State Panthers quarterback Ben McLane wasn't ruled out of the Panthers' upcoming game against the Richmond Spiders. GSU offensive coordinator John Bond said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"At some point, we’ve got to let a guy play through some growing pains," Bond said. "In order to get a guy, you’ve got to let a guy play."

McLane hurt his arm when he was sacked in the second quarter against Georgia, but didn't tell his coaches that he was experiencing numbness in his arm and could not close his hand. Backup Ronnie Bell, a recent transfer from Ohio University, eventually came in and threw a touchdown pass.

McLane has started all three games this year for the Panthers, but has encountered fumbling issues. In fact, he's fumbled eight times alone in the past two games. GSU faces Richmond Saturday in the Georgia Dome.
