FORT WAYNE, Indiana (21 Alive) - Saint Francis coach Kevin Donley was still upset on Sunday about the hit to the head that dislocated the jaw of his starting quarterback Saturday against Siena Heights.

Josh Miller took a blow to the head from a Siena Heights defender as he threw a pass and was forced to leave the game late in the first quarter.

The jaw was reset and Miller hopes to play next week against St. Xavier.

Donley says the play was a clear violation, but resulted in no penalty or disqualification of the player making the hit, both of which the rules call for in such a case.
