Two starters left the game in the first quarter and another got banged up.
Following a personal foul penalty on the first drive by West Virginia, sophomore safety BJ Foster suffered what appeared to be a neck injury on the second drive when he hit a Mountaineers player with his helmet lowered. He was called for a targeting penalty, but wasn’t ejected for the game. However, Foster did leave the game to receive medical treatment. The sophomore had just returned after missing two games with a hamstring injury.
Fortunately for the Horns, Foster was able to return to the game in the second quarter.
Junior safety Chris Brown left the game briefly due to a minor hip injury, but was able to return.
