Although his injury has been discussed after reading the article in LSJ it really shocked me. Why didn't Texass provide proper medical care for Thompson? He's lucky his thumb/hand wasn't permanently damaged by continued playing last season. No wonder he wanted to get the hell out of there! He made the right move coming to Nebraska imo.

"I basically tore and strained all the ligaments and muscles and everything in my hand," Thompson said.
For context, Brees couldn’t even grip a football after he tore his UCL, let alone throw one, so the fact that Thompson continued to play — regardless of his accuracy — is bananas.
Thompson's father, Charles, said if Shin had known about the severity of Thompson’s injury early on, he would have recommended Thompson be shut down immediately.
