Texas Tech freshman quarterback Alan Bowman left Saturday’s game against Oklahoma and headed to the hospital after taking a big hit in the first half. He suffered a re-occurrence of a collapsed lung.
Today, Texas Tech got good news regarding its starting signal caller. Bowman was released from the hospital this afternoon, according to a statement from the program.
Even better, he will be able to rejoin team activities tomorrow.

Bowman originally suffered a collapsed lung during a game in September. One can understand why Texas Tech wants to be cautious with him going forward.
Yesterday, Red Raider head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Bowman’s collapsed lung wasn’t as serious as the one he suffered earlier in the year. Still, backup Jett Duffey will run the show this weekend against Texas.

Texas Tech and Texas will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday on FOX.
