Texas Tech's Potts needs surgery on hand

It's been a rough spring for Texas Tech quarterbacks.

Taylor Potts and Steven Sheffield, who are competing for the starting job, are both done for the spring.

Potts suffered a deep cut in the webbing between his right index and middle finger when he hit a teammate's helmet last week. And Sheffield had surgery on his foot last week after he re-injured it during practice.

Now comes word that Potts will also need surgery.

Not exactly the kind of spring coach new Tommy Tuberville was hoping for, but it's better than getting hit with injuries during the fall.
