Bumped. Yeah, Fozzy. Beat Mizzou.
"Texas fans haven’t seen him in action since UTEP, but redshirt freshman tailback Fozzy Whittaker is “practicing to play,” Longhorn running backs coach Major Applewhite said Thursday.
“He’s doing well,” Applewhite told the Austin Longhorn Club. “He’s ready to go this week.”
Hampered by knee injuries, Whittaker has appeared in just one game, rushing for 72 yards on 12 carries against the Miners.
Even if he’s healthy, however, it’s unclear how much action Whittaker will see, especially with Chris Ogbonnaya’s emergence.
“We’re bringing him along to make sure he’s healthy,” Applewhite said of Whittaker, “and ready to contribute in the right way."
