Texas Tech football provides update on LB Bryce Ramirez after gruesome injury at NC State – The Fayetteville Observer

  • September 19, 2022

Texas Tech defensive edge player Bryce Ramirez remained hospitalized Sunday in North Carolina after he suffered an apparent compound fracture of his lower left leg during the Red Raiders’ game Saturday night at No. 16 NC State.
Tech released a statement Sunday saying members of the Tech medical staff will remain with Ramirez at Wake Medical Center until he is cleared to travel back to Lubbock.
He was injured in the first quarter of Saturday’s game at Carter-Finley Stadium. Medical personnel from both teams and first responders attended to Ramirez for nearly 20 minutes on the field while the game was delayed, and Ramirez was taken from the stadium on a motorized cart.
Texas Tech linebacker Bryce Ramirez suffered a gruesome compound fracture on his left leg with 4:02 left in the first quarter, leaving him on the turf for nearly 20 minutes before he was carted off the field.
The injury occurred during a run by NC State running back Jordan Houston where Ramirez had his leg rolled over by several players. The injury replay was only shown once by ESPN2 and a white towel was draped over his leg to hide the extent of the injury.
The replay shows Ramirez’s left foot turned in the opposite direction.
NC State quarterback Devin Leary patted Ramirez on the shoulder as the junior was being taken off the field.
“He was in good spirits — a lot of pain, but good spirits,” Tech coach Joey McGuire said. “He kept saying, ‘What’s next, coach?’ and ‘Just tell the guys to win.’ What a great kid.
“I hate it because he was playing really, really well. There’s a reason he was starting tonight, and he was playing really, really well.”
NC State won the game 27-14.
Ramirez, a 6-foot-2, 235-pound junior from Richmond George Ranch, made his first career start in the game at boundary end. He forced a punt on NC State’s first possession, tackling quarterback Devin Leary for no gain on third down. Jesiah Pierre started the first two games of the season at that position and took over when Ramirez went down.
Ramirez came to Tech as a walk-on and earned a scholarship last year.
“I feel for that young man. You never want to see something like that in any sport,” NC State coach Dave Doeren said. “That’s a tough part of any sport when an athlete has an injury like that. I feel for him.”
