The details surrounding Myles Brennan’s injury have been shared by the LSU quarterback’s father.

Owen Brennan appeared on WWL’s SportsTalk with Kristian Garic, Bobby Hebert and Mike Detillier to discuss his son’s injury. Owen shared that what happened to Myles was truly a freak accident.

According to Owen Brennan, Myles had fishing gear in his hands when his flip flop got caught in the dock, causing him to fall. Brennan was unable to brace himself. Owen Brennan relayed that Myles went to bed thinking it was just a bruise before doctors confirmed it was a compound fracture of the humerus bone in his left arm.

“He could have been anywhere, anytime, and this accident could have happened,” Owen Brennan said on WWL. “It was just an absolute freak accident. He was not doing anything that he was not supposed to be doing.”

Brennan now has a metal plate and screws in his arm following surgery. He should be able to resume throwing with his uninjured arm in two weeks. Brennan begins rehab on Friday.

Brennan, who is in his fifth season at LSU, missed most of the 2020 season due to other injuries. Last year, in 3 games, Brennan threw for 1,112 yards, 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.
