Chang Goes Down with an Injury

The "breaks" are not going his way. University of Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang will be out of practice from 10 to 14 days after suffering a fracture in his pinky finger. "The bad news is we lost Timmy for a few weeks, but the good news is we have five other quarterbacks," Jones said. "It's unfortunate for Timmy because he worked so hard to come back after his wrist injury, but hopefully we can get him back soon." The injury, which occured during the morning practice on Thursday, is not related to the wrist surgery he underwent in January on the same hand. According to UH team physician Dr. Andy Nichols, the fracture is non-displaced and does not require surgery. Chang, who has started 12 games at quarterback, is disappointed, but optimistic about his return. "It's a minor setback," Chang said. "I wish it wouldn't have happened, but it did, so how we deal with it now is what counts. I'll be out there again. Everything's going to be alright." Hawaii opens the 2002 season on Aug. 31 against Eastern Illinois.
