Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Former Texas Longhorns running back D’Onta Foreman revealed that his remarkable 2,000-yard season was played with a broken hand. Foreman, who declared for the NFL Draft after the Longhorns disappointing season told Ted Johnson and Rich Lord of The Triple Threat on Friday that no one really knew about his injury this season.
Johnson, a three-time Super Bowl winner with the New England Patriots, asked Foreman if his seven fumbles during the season would lead him to work on his ball security once he joins an NFL squad.
“There is always something you’ve got to work on, ball security and pass protection,” Foreman said, “I played during the season with a broken hand that nobody knew about. I just kept it under wraps.”
Foreman rushed for 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns in his Junior season for the Longhorns. He did not specify how long he played with the broken hand, and did not mention how the hand was feeling now as he heads into the NFL Combine.
