But with injuries and setbacks hindering his development, his chances of getting the job in 2019 are in jeopardy.Fortunately for Stevens, things are looking up for him and his injured foot. In a media interview via The Morning Call, Stevens revealed that the foot injury that caused him to miss much of last year’s training is now “feeling great” and that he’s looking to prove how durable he is.“I’ve kind of been bothered by the whole ‘injury-prone’ stigma,” Stevens said after practice in State College. “… I wouldn’t say that durability is an issue. I guess [the foot injury] was never really fixed the right way the first time, so it was fixed right this time. I’m glad it was fixed right, and I’m ready to prove my durability, my worth.”Stevens redshirted in his freshman year and has been used only sparingly over the past three years.His career stats to date include 76 carries for 506 yards and and eight touchdowns, along with two receiving touchdowns.Last season he only threw 11 passes, completing eight for 110 yards and a touchdown.Stevens is right in the middle of a five-way battle for the starting quarterback job, but has reportedly lost reps to fellow veterans Sean Clifford and Will Levis.Coming out of high school in 2015, Stevens was a three-star prospect ranked No. 647 nationally. Per 247Sports, he was the No. 22 pro-style quarterback in the country, and the No. 9 prospect from the state of Indiana.[The Morning Call]last_img read more
