West Virginia quarterback Will Grier is fully cleared to participate in Mountaineer spring practice on Tuesday, according to a university spokesman.
Grier missed the final two games of the 2017 season after suffering a broken middle metacarpal on his throwing hand against Texas on Nov. 18. He underwent surgery two days later and was ruled out of the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
Grier was cleared to begin throwing in January, per ESPN’s Jake Trotter.
The senior enters 2018 as one of the most accomplished passers in the nation. Despite missing nearly three games, Grier finished the year with 3,490 yards and 34 touchdowns in 2017. The Mountaineers were 7-3 before Grier suffered his season-ending injury.
Grier is one of the early favorites to win the Heisman Trophy. He leads all Big 12 players and ranks fifth among quarterbacks with 15/1 betting odds, per OddsShark.
