D’Onta Foreman: ‘I played during the season with a broken hand that nobody knew about’

Posted February 14th, 2017


D’Onta Foreman had a hand in helping the Longhorns offense move the chains last fall. And that hand was broken. Apparently.

Appearing on a Houston radio show last week, the 2016 Doak Walker Award Winner told former NFL linebacker turned radio host Ted Johnson, along with co-host Rich Lord, that he played with a broken hand that few knew about.

“There is always something you’ve got to work on, ball security and pass protection,” Foreman said in the interview. “I played during the season with a broken hand that nobody knew about. I just kept it under wraps.”


Foreman rushed for 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2016. He set and broke several rushing records, including most carries in a game (against Kansas) and most consecutive 100-yard rushing games.

Foreman, a junior, declared for the NFL draft shortly after the season.
