Navy is quite literally pulling people out of the stands to replace its players after quarterback Tago Smith left the game against Fordham with a knee injury.

Per multiple reports, freshman backup quarterback Malcolm Perry, fully adorned in his dress whites to start the game, was pulled from the stands to dress out in a uniform at halftime. He will wear No. 5 in the second half.

Smith, making his first start as the successor to Keenan Reynolds, rushed for 97 yards and completed his lone pass attempt against Fordham before sustaining his knee injury. It’s not clear yet what the extent of his injury is.

Perry, a true freshman, has obviously yet to play in a game.
