STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut quarterback Michael Box, who got his first career start last Saturday, won’t play in the Huskies’ Big East home opener against West Virginia.

Box suffered a head injury during the second half of last Saturday’s 26-0 loss at Louisville, and was replaced by senior Zach Frazer.

But he was listed as the starter for the West Virginia game on Tuesday’s weekly depth chart and met with the media.

Coach Randy Edsall told WTIC-AM on his weekly radio show that he had noticed some things in practice Wednesday that caused him concern. He said he brought those concerns to the attention of the medical staff, who examined Box and ruled him out of Friday night’s game.

Edsall said Frazer will start for UConn (3-4, 0-2 Big East) against the Mountaineers (5-2, 1-1).
