Texas Tech was already missing 15 players this spring from in-season injuries, but just four days after beginning spring practice, the Red Raiders are down a few more.
Wide receiver Marcus Kennard suffered a hamstring injury that will keep him out probably until after spring break, head coach Tommy Tuberville said. Twelve of Tech’s 15 spring workout sessions are scheduled before spring break.
Tech is down its top two split ends with starter Eric Ward sidelined along with Kennard. Tuberville said Tuesday he’s not sure Ward, who has a bruised shoulder, will practice again this spring.
Not what you want to see if you're Texas Tech. Neither injury is major, and the team isn't breaking in a new quarterback, but the team's inability to stay healthy is long past frustrating for the folks in Lubbock.
Ward caught 84 passes for 800 yards and 11 touchdowns, all team highs.
Kennard caught 12 passes for 182 yards.
