Just as they did with Aubrey Burks, the WVU football program is providing an update on the status of linebacker Trey Lathan.
According to West Virginia, Lathan had successful surgery on his lower leg Sunday morning. The plan is for him to continue to recover and be monitored at the hospital in Fort Worth throughout the evening.

Latahn had to be carted off the field during WVU’s game against TCU on Saturday night.
West Virginia’s chippy game with the Horned Frogs resulted in three players leaving the game with injuries, two being carted off and several others experience close calls.
When Lathan went down, the Mountaineers were holding a 24-21 lead over TCU on the road in Fort Worth, Texas. They would end up winning the game by that same score.
After the game, head coach Neal Brown offered an update about how Lathan was doing. Brown said that Lathan was on the cart watching the remainder of the game on his phone, fist pumping when he saw both of the blocked kicks. Lathan was taken out of the game in the fourth quarter with what appeared to be a broken leg. Lathan was placed in an air cast.
The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Lathan is listed as a redshirt freshman after receiving a redshirt for the 2022 season last year. Lathan hails from Goulds, Florida.
Ben Cutter took over for Lathan throughout the rest of the game.
