Quandre Diggs Has Surgery On Left Wrist, Will Miss Rest Of Spring

Cornerback Quandre Diggs is coming off a season where he led the Texas Longhorns with four interceptions, but his 2012 spring has been cut short due to injury. Diggs recently had surgery on his left wrist and has been ruled out the rest of spring including the April 1 Orange-White spring game.

The details of the injury are not being disclosed by the team, but athletic trainer Kenny Boyd anticipates that Diggs will be able to participate in summer conditioning in a few months and is not expected to miss any time for fall camp.

Diggs was named to many Freshman All-American teams this past season and is a key defender for Texas. In addition to playing cornerback, Diggs also took part in the return game and led Texas in punt return average at 20.1 yards per return on nine punts and he finished second on the team in kick return yards with 371 yards which was a 19.5 average per return.
