This morning, a source close to DubVNation informed us that West Virginia wide receiver Marcus Simms underwent an MRI within the last two weeks.

The MRI was a precautionary measure and Simms will be re-evaluated in three weeks. The injury occurred during a game vs Baylor and was labeled as a hamstring issue. Our source said, “The injury was a lot worse than what people knew and it contributed to the hamstring not fully healing.”

Simms did not play during the annual WVU Gold-Blue spring game and was absent for most spring activities trying to recover.

The last time we saw Simms on the field was in the first half vs Oklahoma in which he took a shot to the head and was knocked out of the game. The training staff followed concussion protocol, but Simms showed his emotion on the sidelines to want to continue to play.

Stay tuned to DubVNation for the latest on the injury of Marcus Simms. We should have an update within the coming weeks.
