Watch: Will Grier briefly leaves game after defender rolls over leg
West Virginia got a major scare on Saturday after Will Grier suffered a brief but ugly-looking injury.
Grier had his leg rolled over by a defender after being horse collar tackled late in the first quarter against the Texas Longhorns. The Mountaineers quarterback stayed down for a bit, and fears rose that something serious had happened.

Fortunately for West Virginia, Grier re-entered the game almost immediately for the start of the second quarter.
Well, Will Grier is back in the game so I guess he's OK?

Grier, a longshot Heisman candidate, is a huge part of the West Virginia offense. He certainly didn’t look any worse for wear after returning, throwing an 18-yard touchdown pass on his second play back under center.
