Grier broke his right finger while trying to score on a run against Texas on Saturday. After the game, he flew to Charlotte, North Carolina, near his hometown, where he underwent successful surgery on Sunday.
Grier dived for the pylon in the first quarter Saturday and landed awkwardly on his right hand. His middle finger appeared to be bent backward as he held up his hand while running to the sideline. He was bent over in pain as athletic trainers worked on him.
A review determined Grier had fumbled before he reached the pylon and the ball went out of the end zone. Texas took over on the touchback.
Grier entered the game second in the nation with 34 touchdown passes. He finished 6-of-8 passing for 50 yards.
