HAPPY APPY QB INJURED BY CRANKY LAWN MOWER

Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards, a three-time All-American, will miss two to four weeks after injuring his right foot mowing the lawn at his off-campus residence Wednesday.

Teammate and roommate Brian Quick transported Edwards, a senior, to Watauga Medical Center in Boone, where he was treated and released.

Medical privacy laws prevent the university from releasing details about the injury, ASU spokesman Mike Flynn said.

Edwards won the Walter Payton Award last season, given to the top offensive player in the NCAA's Football Championship Series (formerly Division I-AA). He passed for 2,902 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 941 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Armanti helped Appalachian State win the FCS championship as a freshman in 2006. He passed for three touchdowns and ran for another in the 2007 opener, a 34-32 upset victory at Michigan. The Mountaineers also were FCS champions in 2007.
