  Draft Scout by Conference

  A few days after he tore a ligament in his thumb in a game against Kansas last November, Oklahoma State's Spencer Sanders joined an elite quarterback club. Not the kind of club one wants to join, but rare one nonetheless. The name of the club isn't all that catchy, either: Quarterbacks who had the same surgery as Drew Brees. Sanders tore the ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb of his throwing hand, rendering him unable to grip a football, much less throw one with the usual zip he had shown through the first two-thirds of his freshman season.

The UCL tear of the thumb isn't uncommon in sports, but the type of surgery Sanders received to repair it is still somewhat new in the medical world, meaning it has been around for only a few years. Two months before Sanders suffered his injury, Brees - the quarterback of the New Orleans Saints - became the most notable quarterback to have the specific surgery Sanders had. As OSU nears the start of preseason camp, Sanders' thumb will continue to be tested. And a thumb injury for a quarterback can be detrimental to nearly everything he does. - Daily Oklahoman
