LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -Texas Tech officials confirm that quarterback Graham Harrell had surgery to repair nine breaks in two fingers of his non-throwing hand but won't miss any playing time.
Tech spokesman Chris Cook confirmed the surgery Monday. He didn't have details on whether Harrell's fingers got caught in a facemask or slammed against a helmet in Saturday's 35-28 win over Baylor.
ESPN.com first reported the injury and surgery Sunday on the nation's leading passer. Surgeons inserted 17 pins and two plates into the pinkie and ring finger of Harrell's left hand.
Harrell, a contender for the Heisman Trophy, will play when the No. 8 Red Raiders (11-1) appear in their ninth straight bowl, likely the Cotton Bowl.
