WVU's QB Grier has Succesful Surgery on Throwing Hand; Return for Bowl Game Not being Ruled Out

By Connect-Bridgeport Staff on November 22, 2017 via Connect-Bridgeport.com

According to this report from MetroNews, West Virginia quarterback Will Grier plans to return to North Carolina in two weeks for a post-surgery evaluation on his throwing hand.
 
The junior has 34 passing touchdowns this season, tied for second nationally with Baker Mayfield, whom West Virginia (7-4, 5-3) faces Saturday in the season finale at Oklahoma (10-1, 7-1).
 
As MetroNews reported Saturday night, Grier’s broken middle finger means he won’t play against the Sooners and his bowl status remains doubtful. Coach Dana Holgorsen said he fully supported Grier flying home to North Carolina to meet with a specialist who performed surgery Sunday. His recovery timetable is four-to-six weeks.
 
“He’s obviously out for quite a while,” Holgorsen said, adding that a decision on Grier probably can’t be made until the week of the bowl. “(Breaking) that middle finger on your throwing hand makes it pretty tough.”
