Texas WR Brennan Eagles undergoes arthroscopic surgery on his elbow

The procedure was minor enough that the sophomore is expected back for the season opener.

On Thursday, Texas Longhorns sophomore wide receiver Brennan Eagles underwent arthroscopic surgery on his elbow, according to team officials.

According to Eagles, the surgery was a success:

The 6’4, 225-pounder is expected back for the season opener against Louisiana Tech at the end of the month. A breakout star of the offseason and early preseason camp, Eagles is expected to start at the flanker position after his emergence caused the coaching staff to move senior wide receiver Devin Duvernay from flanker inside to the slot.

So the surgery that Eagles underwent on Thursday should merely be a minor setback ahead of his anticipated breakout season.
