Less than a month after suffering what was thought to be a season-ending injury, ULM quarterback Kolton Browning will return to the Warhawks’ starting lineup.
Browning suffered a torn quad on Sept. 28 against Tulane and was feared to be lost for the year. After a much faster-than-expect recovery, Browning received medical clearance Friday and will start today against Georgia State.
“Kolton Browning has made dramatic progress, and with the practice work that he had this week and the physician’s report this morning, I am comfortable with him being the starter in tomorrow’s game,” ULM coach Todd Berry said in a release.
Browning, the reigning Sun Belt Offensive Player of the Year, battled issues with his quad all season before the tear in loss to Tulane. At the time, Berry said that it was “doubtful” Browning would return, and sophomore Brayle Brown was inserted into the lineup.
Brown went 1-1 as starter, with ULM losing to Western Kentucky before beating Texas State on the road last week.
The Warhawks are currently 3-4 with road games against Troy, South Alabama and rival Louisiana-Lafayette and a home game against Arkansas State remaining.
