On Saturday, head coach Matt Rhule announced that the promising rookie quarterback had been sidelined indefinitely due to a serious foot injury.

After rookie quarterback Matt Corral was forced to leave Friday’s preseason game against the Patriots, coach Matt Rhule gave a devastating update on the rookie’s condition.

Rhule informed the press on Saturday that 23-year-old Corral has torn the Lisfranc ligament in his left foot and will be out indefinitely. Rhule described the injury as “significant,” adding that the team is currently “exploring the possibilities and options with the best doctors across the country.”

Joe Person of The Athletic and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network both said the injury is “likely” season-ending.

As the team’s second series of the fourth quarter got underway, Corral, a third-round draft pick this year, hobbled off the field and went to get X-rays. A walking boot was seen on Corral’s left foot as he walked out of the locker room; at the time of his departure, the former Ole Miss standout had completed nine of his fifteen pass attempts for 58 yards.

After an impressive college career, quarterback Matt Corral entered training camp ranked fourth on the depth chart behind Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, and P.J. Walker. Nonetheless, Corral showed signs of promise throughout the camp. The former Rebels quarterback played for three seasons (2019-2021) and started in 37 games, totaling 8,281 yards, 57 touchdowns, and 23 interceptions.
