Coach Dana Holgorsen delivered some bad news Monday when it comes to freshman linebacker Brendan Ferns. He is undergoing his second major surgery in two years as a Mountaineer.
He injured his shoulder during the 56-34 win over Kansas. Several injuries happened to the Mountaineer defense, which resulted in inexperienced players all over the field.
“Unfortunately, he’s going to have to have shoulder surgery. This is two years in a row,” coach Dana Holgorsen said about Ferns. “That’s football. There’s risk involved in it. Obviously we don’t want to lose anybody, but people are going to. He was one of our most valuable special teams guys, playing as much or more snaps as anybody.”
Before his true freshman year Ferns suffered a serious knee injury during the preseason, causing him to miss the entire season.
