Coastal Carolina quarterback Grayson McCall is still recovering from a head injury he suffered in the Chanticleers’ win at Arkansas State two weekends ago. McCall has not been cleared medically, and as the calendar moves into November, there’s some concern as to whether he’ll be able to return to the lineup this season. On Wednesday, head coach Tim Beck said that a decision hasn’t been made, and when it is, it won’t be his call.
“It’s really up to him and his family,” Beck told the media regarding McCall’s future. “At the end of the day, we want to do what’s best for Grayson, whatever that is. Those are conversations that he and I have had. But I don’t think he’s ready at that point to make those decisions yet. But right now, it’s just kinda week-to-week.”
During his weekly press conference, Beck elaborated further on McCall’s future and how the team is preparing in his absence.
“I think the longer it plays out, the less likelihood we’re going to have him. We are proceeding as if we won’t; if we get him, it’s a bonus. We have to move on with the assumption that he probably won’t play again this year.”
Beck also broke down this Saturday’s matchup at Old Dominion, along with discussing the transfer portal, what a bowl game would mean for the program, and how he’s teaching his team to remain on an even keel regardless of the results each week.
