Bozeman, Mont. • Montana State football coach Rob Ash says wide receiver Tanner Roderick is out for about six weeks with a hand injury suffered in Saturday's game at SMU.

Roderick transferred to MSU from Nevada, where he was recruited as a quarterback, and has caught four passes in MSU's two games this season. He is also the holder on extra points.

The injury was diagnosed Tuesday.

Ash says sophomore receiver Mitch Griebel will assume Roderick's duties as holder. Roderick's replacement on the depth chart at receiver will be announced Saturday.

MSU also lost starting quarterback DeNarius McGhee for several weeks after he suffered a separated shoulder in the SMU game. Officials have said he'll be out until sometime next month.

Ash has said Jake Bleskin will start at quarterback in MSU's home game against Colorado Mesa on Saturday.
