Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb suffered a shoulder injury in Thursday night’s loss to Oklahoma State and did not return to game action. Webb was injured at the beginning of the fourth quarter and was taken to the locker room for examination. The injury affected Webb's non-throwing shoulder.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury did not have an update on Webb’s status following the game, and the sophomore’s status for Texas Tech’s Oct. 4 matchup against Kansas State is uncertain.

Prior to leaving the game, Webb threw for 371 yards and four touchdowns.

If Webb is out for next week’s game, true freshman Patrick Mahomes will get the start. Mahomes was a three-star recruit in the 2014 signing class, and Thursday night’s snaps against Oklahoma State was the first extended action of his career.

Mahomes finished with 20 passing yards, one interception and one touchdown and completed just two of five passes. He also rushed for 16 yards on seven attempts.

Texas Tech has two games in a row after a 2-0 start. Losing Webb for a period of time would be a huge loss for the Red Raiders, as a road trip to Kansas State is up next week, followed by a home game against West Virginia on Oct. 11.

Webb’s potential absence isn’t the only problem for Texas Tech to worry about over the next week, as the defense remains a major concern after allowing at least 26 points in every game this year.

More about Webb’s status for next week should be known early next week.
