Zach Frazier Announces Surgery, Confirms End to WVU Career



WVU Football C Zach Frazier

In the midst of celebrating Saturday’s win over Baylor in the regular season finale, WVU coaches and players had to deal with the realization that Zach Frazier suffered an injury.

Frazier has now released a statement to publicly confirm that his career as a Mountaineer did end on that play and to thank the fans for their support. He also said he had surgery on Monday.

“Saturday was not how I pictured my career at WVU ending, but I would do it all again. This is a little setback, but I will be back stronger. I know God has a plan for me,” said Frazier.

On Saturday night, Frazier was seen angrily going to the sidelines limping in the fourth quarter. By limping off, he avoided his team enduring a 10-second runoff of time.

“He has an injury that is significant. Don’t know how long he’ll be out, but he probably won’t play in the bowl game,” Brown said during his postgame press conference. The quick statement about the bowl game is likely largely due to his prospects as an NFL draft pick.

It’s expected Brandon Yates, who replaced him in the game, will now start in the bowl game.

Frazier was not the only injury update for Brown after the game. Wide receiver Preston Fox was taken to the hospital before the game was over. WVSN has since learned Fox was on the plane ride home from Waco that night is said to be “fine” and available going forward. It appeared as if Fox had the wind knocked out of him after making a catch.

For a related story, both Brown and quarterback Garrett Greene praised Frazier for his final moment as a Mountaineer.
