MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) West Virginia quarterback Will Grier has undergone surgery on a broken finger in his throwing hand and will miss four to six weeks.

Coach Dana Holgorsen on Monday did not explicitly rule out Grier for the Mountaineers’ bowl game but said coming back is ”going to be kind of tough.”

Grier injured the middle finger on his right hand in Saturday’s 28-14 loss to Texas as he dove for the end-zone pylon on a first-quarter run. He underwent surgery Sunday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Redshirt sophomore Chris Chugunov will get his first career start on Saturday at No. 3 Oklahoma.
