Update 3:00 p.m. McCall is starting for Coastal Carolina.

Update 1:40 p.m. McCall is on the field warming up. Still technically a game time decision, but the chatter on Twitter appears to be that he’ll be a go today. The spread is currently Troy -7 at DraftKings Sportsbook.


Coastal Carolina quarterback Grayson McCall missed the Chanticleers’ final two regular season games with a high ankle sprain. Backup Jarrett Guest went 1-1 as a starter in McCall’s absence, passing for 262 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions.

As Coastal prepares to face the Troy Trojans in the Sun Belt Conference Championship Game on Saturday, Dec. 3, McCall has a chance to return to the field.

Coastal Carolina QB Grayson McCall injury updates

McCall will be a game-time decision before the Chanticleers’ 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff on Saturday. McCall has completed 68.9% of his passes this season, throwing 21 touchdowns and just a singular interception back in September. For Coastal to even have a shot at this championship, they’ll need McCall on the field.

Head coach Jamey Chadwell said Wednesday that McCall would not be able to step out onto a field to play at that moment, but there have been several more days of recovery since he made that statement.

Troy enters the game as a seven-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The total is set at 50.

Updates to come.
