Texas Tech Red Raiders sophomore quarterback Davis Webb will have surgery on his left shoulder, per Nick Talbot of The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. Talbot quoted a text message from team spokesman Blayne Beal.

Beal confirmed the procedure and gave a glimpse into Webb's recovery. Beal said: "I can confirm surgery ... expected to make a full recovery and be ready for spring ball."

This prognosis may put to bed some of the concerns originally reported by Travis Haney of ESPN.com that suggested Webb could possibly missing spring practice .

Webb missed the last four-plus games and was replaced by freshman Patrick Mahomes. As a replacement, Mahomes more than made his mark. In the last three games, Mahomes has averaged 439.6 passing yards and 4.6 touchdowns per game.

Many are impressed with the freshman's performance.

Webb originally injured the shoulder on Sept. 25 in the Red Raiders' loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Despite the injury, Webb returned to action the following week against the TCU Horned Frogs. He suffered an ankle injury that ended his season. 

Webb threw for 2,539 yards, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season.
