Texas OT Josh Cochran declared out for Kansas game

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Despite the loss, the Longhorns are as healthy as they have been in weeks.

For the fifth straight game, the Texas Longhorns will be without junior offensive tackle Josh Cochran against Kansas.

Cochran aggravated a shoulder injury he suffered early in fall camp in the game against Ole Miss and has not played since, though sophomore Kennedy Estelle has played well in his stead.

Head coach Mack Brown also indicated that while junior quarterback David Ash has already been declared out this week, he did throw the ball some this weekend. The symptoms have also been subsiding for Ash, Brown wanted to pass along, and he is making progress.

Late last week, Brown mentioned that junior wide receiver Bryant Jackson, who suffered a foot fracture in fall camp, is expected to be back some time during the next several weeks.

In all, the Longhorns are still missing two starters on offense and don't have junior linebacker Jordan Hicks after his ruptured Achilles, but are on the whole as healthy as they have been since the BYU game, aided by the two bye weeks already this season.

There did not appear to be any significant dings from the TCU game, either.
