The sudden resurgence of oversized quarterback Jared Lorenzen has ended almost as suddenly as it began.

Lorenzen suffered an ankle injury when the nimble narwhal was hit low while scrambling toward the end zone in an indoor football game pitting the Northern Kentucky River Monsters against the Erie Explosion.

He was carried off the field by four people, in a moment slightly less heroic than the time teammates carried Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich down the field so that he could keep playing.
