In last night’s victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats, quarterback Greg Ward Jr. was showing signs of the shoulder problems he has been dealing with since the team’s season-opening win over Oklahoma.
Head coach Tom Herman spoke with reporters and confirmed what everyone who watched the game already knew.
Herman said Ward’s shoulder is still not 100 percent and that it would “eventually” get better. The Houston Chronicle’s Joseph Duarte reported Herman’s comments about his shoulder.
Tom Herman on Ward shoulder: 'My understand is it's healing but it's going to take some time.'

Ward did go 24-36 with 326 yards and a first-quarter touchdown, but he threw two key interceptions, both of which happened near the endzone. His defense luckily came through in the second half, recording a safety and two pick sixes to seal the 40-16 victory.
The Cougars will certainly have to monitor Ward over the next few days. The next take to the road to face off against the Texas State Bobcats on Saturday, Sept. 24.
