Houston head coach Tom Herman told the Houston Chronicle that quarterback Greg Ward Jr. underwent an MRI on his right throwing shoulder.

Herman said that injury is not serious even though Ward was held out of practice on Sunday.

Ward, a senior, was injured in the third quarter of the Houston's 33–23 victory over third-ranked Oklahoma, but did not leave the game.

Ward was 23/40 for 321 yards with two passing touchdowns in the game, and also ran the ball 18 yards, but only gained one yard.

Houston hosts FCS member Lamar on Saturday.
