NDSU's Dunn questionable for semifinals

By  | 

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) -- North Dakota State head football coach Chris Klieman called Lance Dunn questionable for Friday's FCS semifinal match up between NDSU and South Dakota State.

Dunn, a senior running back, left Saturday's quarterfinal game against Colgate before half and left the FargoDome after the game wearing a sling.

Klieman said Monday during his weekly press conference that Dunn suffered an injury to his ligament in his elbow and that he was told there was no fracture of any kind. The team will see how he responds throughout the week before making a decision Friday.

Dunn missed most of the 2017 playoff run with a hip injury and the chance he could miss more time hits Klieman on a personal level.

"I'm crushed for him, really. I called him Saturday night and just told him how much I loved him and appreciated him and if he can't play we'll work our tail off to get a victory so that maybe he'll have that opportunity again."

Dunn has 15 total touchdowns for the Bison this season (12 rushing, 3 receiving) including a four touchdown performance against Montana State in the Second Round of the FCS Playoffs.
