Texas Tech quarterback Alan Bowman was released from the hospital on Wednesday afternoon after suffering a partially collapsed lung last week.

Bowman took a hit late in the second quarter of Texas Tech’s 51-46 loss to No. 6 Oklahoma. He had trouble catching his breath while attempting to warm up just after halftime and was then transported to the hospital, where he was evaluated for a “recurrence of a partially collapsed lung.”

Bowman is scheduled to rejoin team activities on Thursday, though it’s expected that he will not play in their game against No. 19 Texas on Saturday.

Bowman’s four-day stay in the hospital marked his second this season. The freshman suffered a partially collapsed lung after taking a hit in their game against West Virginia on Sept. 29. He missed one game before returning to the starting lineup.

Bowman has racked up 2,638 yards on 227 completions and thrown 17 touchdowns in eight games so far this season.

With Bowman likely to miss Saturday’s game, backup quarterback Jett Duffey will likely get the start against the Longhorns. Duffey threw for two touchdowns and ran for one touchdown himself after taking over for Bowman against the Sooners last weekend.
