West Virginia isn't sure it will have its starting QB back this year after a grisly injury in the loss to Texas.
West Virginia quarterback Will Grier had surgery to repair a broken middle finger on his throwing hand over the weekend and is expected to be sidelined around a month. His status for the Mountaineers’ bowl game is questionable, a source told SI Monday morning.
Grier injured his finger trying to run into the end zone Saturday against Texas. He was replaced by backup Chris Chugunov in a 28–14 loss that dropped the Mountaineers to 7–4.
A 6' 2", 210-pound junior transfer who started his college career in Florida, Grier has had a huge season in Morgantown, throwing 34 touchdowns against just 12 interceptions while passing for 3,490 yards.
