West Virginia QB Will Grier hurts throwing hand vs. Texas
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia quarterback Will Grier has hurt his throwing hand while trying to score on a run against Texas.
Grier dove for the pylon in the first quarter Saturday and landed awkwardly on his right hand. One of his fingers appeared to be bent backward as he held up his hand while running to the sideline. He was bent over in pain as trainers worked on him.
A review determined Grier had fumbled before he reached the pylon and went out of the end zone. Texas took over on the touchback.
Backup Chris Chugunov replaced Grier on No. 24 West Virginia’s next series.
Grier entered the game second in the nation with 34 touchdown passes.
