Trevone Boykin toughed out a nagging injury over the course of the season on his non-throwing wrist, but the TCU gunslinger is expected to have a procedure done this spring. Boykin will have a fractured bone repaired towards the end of spring ball, and is expected to be just fine by the fall.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin is expected to have a procedure to repair a fractured bone in his non-throwing wrist, coach Gary Patterson told reporters.
Boykin plans to participate in spring drills before undergoing the procedure the final week of spring drills. He played through the injury for much of last season, wearing a soft cast.
“We’re going to make sure that gets fixed right,” Patterson said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “He won’t go through the last three practices of spring, three or four. We’ll get that done so he’s ready to go come August.”
TCU starts its spring practice Friday.
This isn’t incredibly uncommon for players to have procedures done during the offseason, but I have to give some kudos to Boykin for wanting to go through spring practice before taking care of it. I can’t wait to see what he does for an encore this fall after just barely missing out on a trip to New York in 2014.
