Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. undergoes MRI on shoulder

Monday September 5th, 2016

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

Herman said that the injury was not serious, even though Ward was held out of practice on Sunday. The results of the MRI were still unknown, but Herman said the team thinks the injury is a muscular one.

Ward, a senior, sustained the injury in the third quarter of the Houston's 33–23 victory over No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday, but he did not leave the game.

Ward completed 23 of 40 passes for 321 yards with two passing touchdowns in the game. He also ran the ball 18 yards, but gained only one yard.

Houston hosts FCS member Lamar on Saturday.
