Did not score in three appearances. Joey was eventually shut down for the season due to a concussion and symptoms afterwards. The coaching staff was concerned if they kept playing him, they might have to shut him down anyway, and didn’t figure it was worth losing a year of eligibility since Joey wasn’t counted on to be a contributor. Joey was able to declare a medical redshirt and will be a freshman for the 2012-13 season.
