LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech freshman quarterback Alan Bowman sustained a partially collapsed lung against West Virginia and remained hospitalized a day after getting injured.

Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury said Sunday there wasn’t a timetable for Bowman’s return but that it would likely be “sooner than later” because Bowman didn’t have broken ribs.

Bowman was injured in the second quarter of a 42-34 loss to the Mountaineers when he was sandwiched on a hit by Ezekiel Rose and Keith Washington as he threw a pass. Kingsbury said Bowman was evaluated at the team’s facility before being taken to a hospital.

“I’ve never had one that’s had it,” Kingsbury said. “It’s a new kind of experience for all of us. He’s doing better. He was up and alert and seemed to be in a good mood.”

Bowman was the nation’s leading passer going into the game after taking over in the season opener when McLane Carter sprained an ankle in a loss to Mississippi.

Jett Duffey replaced Bowman and had the Red Raiders within eight points and driving in the fourth quarter after they trailed 35-10 at halftime. Duffey’s second interception was returned for what amounted to a clinching touchdown by Washington.

Carter won the preseason competition to become the starter. Kingsbury hasn’t said when the junior might return from his injury. The next game for the Red Raiders is Thursday, Oct. 11, at TCU.

“We’re being cautious,” Kingsbury said. “His game is a little bit different than Alan’s where he’s going to move and make plays. So we want to make sure he’s 100 percent before we get him back out there.”

Duffey, a sophomore, had his first career touchdown pass and scoring run to help the Red Raiders get within 35-27. He threw for 172 yards and ran for 86.

Bowman has 1,680 yards passing with 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. He had a touchdown and an interception against the Mountaineers (4-0, 2-0 Big 12), who jumped to ninth from 12th in the AP Top 25. The Red Raiders (3-2, 1-1) dropped out from No. 25 with the loss.
