Wharton QB Litton suffers fracture in throwing hand

Wharton rising junior quarterback Chase Litton has suffered a hairline fracture in his right (throwing) hand and will miss the Wildcats’ spring jamboree game next week, coach David Mitchell confirmed.
Mitchell said the 6-foot-6, 195-pound Litton sustained the injury Friday during practice, when Litton’s hand struck the helmet of a teammate in drills. Litton is expected to be out several weeks while the fracture heals.
In the meantime, Mitchell said taking Litton’s place under center will be rising senior Vernon Hargreaves (5-11, 185). According to ESPN, Hargreaves is the nation’s No. 1 recruit at defensive back. But he saw duty at quarterback last season when Litton was injured and is familiar with the offense as a wide receiver.
