Oklahoma State QB Spencer Sanders Out for Season Following Thumb Surgery

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at Oregon State

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.


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.
