The Blue Raider’s Reggie Upshaw will experience a delay in his preseason training due to a wrist surgery on Thursday to repair a torn ligament.

Upshaw, an upcoming MTSU senior and Blue Raiders forward, played the most minutes of any Blue Raider and scored the second most points on his team last season. During the postseason, Upshaw experienced some discomfort in his left wrist, but continued play. An MRI from Friday revealed the damaged ligament, and Upshaw scheduled the surgery alongside head coach Kermit Davis.

“We expect him to be very diligent in his rehabilitation and make a full, strong recovery,” Davis said on Upshaw’s upcoming procedure.

Despite the setback, Upshaw will not be entirely removed from preseason skill development. After six weeks of rehabilitation, he will be cleared for running and conditioning, and for non-contact activities after approximately 90 days.
