Texas WR Jaxon Shipley Ruled Out Against Missouri

For the second consecutive week, the Texas Longhorns will be without freshman wide receiver Jaxon Shipley, who leads the team in catches.

Shipley suffered a strained MCL during the first half of the Kansas game two weeks ago and has practiced only sporadically since, while missing the Texas Tech game as well.

Since the Longhorns are unlikely to be able to get Missouri throwing the football only seven times, other receivers will have to step up, including DeSean Hales and Miles Onyegbule, who have only one catch between them. Another candidate is Darius White, who reportedly had a strong week of practice and is improving his blocking. White caught his first career touchdown last week late against Texas Tech.

Freshman guard Sedrick Flowers will also not travel with the team to Columbia because of a left shoulder injury.
 Another wide receiver, John Harris, is presumably still out with a fractured foot, but every other player should be available for the Longhorns.
