Quandre Diggs Injury: Texas Loses Top INT Man For Spring

Spring football season has been off and running for a little while, and while that should get everyone excited for this fall, that means injuries are once again possible during practices. Unfortunately, the injury bug has already bitten the Texas Longhorns.

Quandre Diggs, one of the Longhorns' top defensive backs when it comes to coverage with four interceptions and 17 passes defended during his freshman season, will miss the remainder of the spring due to a left wrist injury. The Austin Statesman brought the specifics regarding Diggs' injury.

Quandre Diggs, the cornerback who led the Longhorns with four interceptions last season as a freshman, has undergone surgery to his left wrist and will miss the rest of spring practice.

Diggs had successful surgery Saturday to repair the injury and is expected to recover in time for the 2012 season, Longhorns head athletic trainer for football Kenny Boyd said.

The exact injury wasn't made clear in the article, but as long as Diggs is expected to be healthy for the actual football season, this isn't too serious of an issue.
