WVU football coach Neal Brown has confirmed that starting quarterback Austin Kendall missed a practice in the lead up to Saturday’s loss vs. Texas.
During his weekly teleconference, Brown noted that Kendall did not practice Sunday due to an infection in his throwing hand. The Athletic reports that Kendall missed time with the team because he was hospitalized.
But Brown added that he thinks there are “zero questions” about Kendall’s toughness, noting that the signal caller has exhibited that fact throughout the season.
“He came back and practiced the rest of the week, and like I said, I’m not disappointed in how he played,” Brown said. “We’ve got to clean up some things, but I thought he gave us a chance in a lot of ways on Saturday.”
Brown also shared an early evaluation of Iowa State, West Virginia’s next opponent, as well as Brock Purdy, the Cyclones’ standout sophomore quarterback. Listen to complete audio from Brown’s weekly teleconference at the top of this page.
