Texas Tech QB Alan Bowman sustains partially collapsed lung
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech freshman quarterback Alan Bowman sustained a partially collapsed lung against West Virginia and remained hospitalized a day after getting injured.
Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury said Sunday there wasn’t a timetable for Bowman’s return but that it would likely be “sooner than later” because Bowman didn’t have broken ribs. Kingsbury said Bowman was “in good spirits.”
Bowman was injured in the second quarter of a 42-34 loss to the Mountaineers when he was sandwiched on a hit by Ezekiel Rose and Keith Washington as he threw a pass. Kingsbury said Bowman was evaluated at the team’s facility before being taken to a hospital.
Bowman was the nation’s leading passer going into the game. He took over when McLane Carter sprained an ankle in the opener.
