Texas’ leading rusher to undergo on broken finger surgery on Thursday


ForemanTEXAS (AP) — Texas second-leading rusher D’Onta Foreman will undergo surgery on his right pinkie on Thursday and his status is up in the air for next weekend’s matchup with Texas Tech.

Texas’ Head coach Charlie Strong has confirmed that D’Onta Foreman will undergo surgery Thursday repairing a broken finger on his right hand. The running back underwent the broken pinkie in the loss to West Virginia last weekend.

On account of the surgery, Freeman’s handiness for the Thanksgiving game against Texas Tech is decidedly unknown.

Strong said, “We just don’t know the extent of the injury. We’re not sure if he’ll be able to carry a football, at least not yet.”

Longhorns leading rusher Foreman has 681 yards this season, averages 7.2 yards per carry for Texas (4-6, 3-4 Big 12) and in rushing touchdowns with five.

Foreman was injured in the second half of the last week loss at West Virginia Mountaineers. In the next two game, Texas must win to go automatically qualify for a bowl of the season.

Longhorns running backs Johnathan Gray did not return to the field after suffering a foot injury at West Virginia. He is currently second most among Texas Longhorns running backs with 489 yards.

Head coach Strong also contradict the rumor that he might be interested to join in the vacant head coaching job at Miami. Strong is working with Texas for two years and achieved 10-13.

He said, “I have to be successful here.”
