BOISE, Idaho — During Boise State's game against the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors, the Broncos' starting freshman quarterback, Hank Bachmeier, left the game after taking a hit when he scrambled out of the pocket to get a first down.

Bachmeier was taken to the medical tent after he fell down when he tried to stand up from a bench on the sidelines. Trainers then took him to the medical center at the stadium. 

Just before halftime, Bachmeier was seen walking along the sidelines under his own power towards the locker rooms, with trainers carrying his pads and helmet.

It is unknown what Bachmeier's injury is, or how serious it is.

He later came out to the Boise State sidelines in the middle of the third quarter in sweats.

Sophomore quarterback Chase Cord took the reins of the offense over after Bachmeier left the game.

In the post-game press conference, Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin said that Bachmeier's injury isn't season-ending, and is likely a hip-pointer, or something along those lines.

This is a developing story and this article will be updated when further information is made available.
