Bob Barry Jr. first reported via 98.9 The Sports Animal that Oklahoma State starting QB J.W. Walsh underwent surgery today.

Walsh was injured last Saturday against Missouri State. It was later reported that Walsh suffered a broken foot, but Gundy shot down those rumors in his weekly press conference.

In this latest report it's suggested that Walsh will be out 6-8 weeks, but no official statement regarding Walsh's injury has been released by Oklahoma State.

Backup QB, Daxx Garman, had an impressive debut coming in for Walsh. Garman completed 16 of 26 passing attempts for 244 yards, and two touchdowns.

It is uncertain whether or not Daxx would start against UTSA though. Oklahoma State was hoping to redshirt freshman QB, Mason Rudolph. If Walsh's injury forces the Cowboys to burn Ruldolph's redshirt option, the young QB could challenge for the starting position.
