BOCA RATON – FAU quarterback Daniel Parr underwent foot surgery on Wednesday to repair a stress fracture, OwlAccess.com has learned.
His status for FAU’s spring practice, which beings on March 21, is uncertain.
Parr suffered the injury during offseason conditioning drills.
New FAU coach Lane Kiffin declined to comment on Parr’s status.
A rising redshirt sophomore, Parr was expected to be part of a three-way quarterback battle, along with redshirt junior Jason Driskel and junior college transfer De’Andre Johnson.
Parr played in nine games last season, starting once. He completed 41.7 percent of his passes, throwing two interceptions and zero touchdowns.
This spring FAU veterans Parr and Driskel will be trying to learn their third different offense in as many seasons. Brian Wright served as the Owls’ offensive coordinator during Parr’s first year. Last season Travis Trickett controlled the offense.
Kiffin hired former Baylor offensive coordinator Kendal Briles to guide the offense this season.
Parr is considered one of the highest-rated recruits ever to sign with FAU, spurning a late push from Miami to enroll early in Boca Raton.
FAU will play its spring game on April 22.
