Texas quarterback Colt McCoy says he'll probably lose the nail on his bruised right thumb, though the injury won't keep him from playing this week against Missouri.
McCoy hurt the thumb on his throwing hand in the second quarter
of the 16-13 win Saturday over No. 25 Oklahoma. He struggled
through one of the worst passing games of his career, completing 21
of 40 for 127 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
McCoy's thumb was slightly swollen and reddish Monday with
limited range of movement. Although the nail didn't look
discolored, McCoy says he's been told it will fall out.
No. 3 Texas (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) doesn't practice Monday.
