The Oklahoma State Cowboys will be without starting quarterback Spencer Sanders for at least the final two games of the regular season against West Virginia and Oklahoma due to a thumb injury suffered last week against Kansas.
ESPN’s Dusty Dvoracek was the first to report the news on Thursday.
I’ve been told that Spencer Sanders had surgery on his thumb. Absolutely hate to hear this news as it seemed like he had really turned a corner and was playing some really good football. Regular season over, but it will be interesting if he will be able to return for the Bowl.— Dusty Dvoracek (@DustyDvoracek) November 21, 2019
Sanders redshirt freshman season comes to an end with a 7-3 record. For his personal stats, he finished with 2,065 passing yards, the most for a freshman in school history and 625 rushing yards.
Sanders will be replaced by Hawaii transfer Dru Brown who has been waiting for his shot. In relief duty last week against Kansas, he threw for 70 yards and a TD on just five passes. This season, Brown is 13-of-18 passing for 223 yards and three touchdowns passes.
Brown played in 25 games at Hawaii and completed 62 percent of his passes for 5,273 yards and 37 touchdowns with 15 interceptions.
The Cowboys hit the road this weekend to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers for an 11 a.m. kick off.
