TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin underwent wrist surgery Thursday, as the Horned Frogs had planned.

Coach Gary Patterson announced in February the plan for Boykin to end spring training a week early, and confirmed the success of the surgery to Fox Sports Southwest.

Boykin suffered the injury to his left wrist, on his non-throwing hand, during the Kansas State game last year when he hit the ground on a play to the sideline. Boykin threw for a school-record 3,901 yards and a school-record 33 touchdowns last year in leading the Horned Frogs to a share of the Big 12 championship.

A handful of other players were expected to have procedures this week to “clean up” their injuries, Patterson said following a scrimmage Tuesday.

TCU has three more practices in the spring, including the spring game on April 10.
