Edwards apparently out for ASU

REENVILLE, N.C. - Appalachian State starting quarterback Armanti Edwards apparently won't play in this afternoon's season opener at East Carolina.

Edwards is wearing his jersey but not a helmet, shoulder pads or turf shoes as Appalachian State warms up for the game, which kicks off at noon. He was listed as doubtful for the game after needing 35 stitches to close an injury suffered in a lawn mowing accident.

Sophomore DeAndre Presley is replacing Edwards as the starter.
