Quarterback Endres suspended indefinitely by Connecticut
Staff and wire reports

STORRS, Conn. - The University of Connecticut has indefinitely suspended backup quarterback Cody Endres and guard Erik Kuraczea.

The school would only say that Endres, a redshirt junior, and Kuraczea, a sophomore, violated school policies.

Endres, a Washington native and former quarterback for Trinity High School, started six games last season, throwing for 1,354 yards and six touchdowns after starting quarterback Zach Frazer was sidelined with a knee injury.

Frazer regained the job after Endres suffered a season-ending shoulder injury against Rutgers on Halloween night. Frazier beat out Endres for the starting job during spring practice.

Endres became the first Washington County player to start at quarterback for a school from one of the six major college conferences since Ringgold's Scott Zolak quarterbacked Maryland in 1990.

In a game against Pitt last season, Endres had his best performance against major college competition. He completed 17 of 23 passes (73.9 percent) for 197 yards and one touchdown.

He also had a key fumble that helped the Panthers rally from a 15-point deficit and take a 24-21 victory at Heinz Field.

Kuraczea, a redshirt sophomore, started five games last year but was listed behind senior Mathieu Olivier at left guard this season.
