Texas Tech Red Raiders QB Behren Morton injured vs. TCU

The Texas Tech Red Raiders traveled to Fort Worth to take on the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday in a Big 12 matchup.

The game didn’t get off to a good start for Tech as the offense got out of the gate on a three-and-out on the first possession of the game. Then, on the next punt, TCU’s Derius Davis sprinted 82 yards for a TCU touchdown, putting the Red Raiders up 7-0 not even two minutes into the game.

But Tech offense and quarterback Behren Morton found some rhythm and broke a 10-10 tie midway through the second period.

But that pace could be in jeopardy as Morton went to the locker room visibly limping.

The injury occurred after Morton scrambled four yards to the left sideline trying to convert a 3rd-and-11 from the Tech 35. He winced in pain during the tackle when a defensive lineman fell on his legs. Teammates helped Morton up and helped him to the sidelines.

Morton was helped by trainers on the sidelines before being helped to the dressing room for further examination and has been ruled out for the second half.

Oregon transfer Tyler Shough entered the game on the Red Raiders’ next drive. Shough was named the starter in the offseason before injuring his shoulder in Week 1.

Morton is 7-for-10 for 79 yards and a touchdown pass in the game, and 89-for-158 for 1,038 yards with six touchdowns and six interceptions for the season.
