UT’s Bray Has Plate Inserted Into Hand; No Impact On Recovery Time

Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray had a metal plate inserted into his hand today to help his broken thumb heal properly, but the procedure is not expected to slow his recovery time.  Bray’s thumb — broken two Saturdays ago against Georgia — is expected to take about six weeks to heal.

“They have to let the swelling go down and the plate is in only so the bone doesn’t grow, so it doesn’t heal crooked,” Derek Dooley said today.  “The plate’s only to help the healing.  The scar tissue heals but it can move.  If it moves and then it heals, then you’ve got a crooked thumb.  We certainly don’t want that with our quarterback.”

Maybe he should have asked for the Skywalker Special (at left).

Bray was leading the SEC in passer rating before the injury.  He had thrown 14 touchdowns against just 2 interceptions on the season.



Hopefully when he gets back our running game can be as effective as it was against LSU. If we had all parts of the offense working we could be quite formidable in the East.


Hope his hand heals properly and he uses this time in the film room to get better.
