Losing Webb is a hammer blow to Texas Tech's offense. Before exiting, he had thrown for 374 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.

Fox Sports Southwest's David Ubben believes that Tech made the right decision to take him out for the game, though, considering the unpredictable nature of the injury:

The road doesn't get any easier for the Red Raiders after Thursday. Next week, they travel to Kansas State to take on the No. 25 Wildcats. The week after that, they welcome in a dangerous West Virginia Mountaineers team.

In order for Texas Tech to be a serious threat in the Big 12, Webb will need to make a speedy recovery.
