Texas Football Hate Week Injury Report

New, 4 comments

Here we are, folks. Less than 24 hours until the RRR kicks off in the Cotton Bowl, and Texas is extremely healthy heading into this showdown with the Longhorns' biggest (only?) rival. First, the best and biggest news: after several days of assumptions that Christian Scott's wrist injury would keep him out "indefinitely," he has been upgraded and may very well get some time in Dallas. That would be huge.

Also in very good news, sophomore linebacker Demarco Cobbs, who impressed coaches in the preseason before breaking his arm, is now listed as "probable" for this weekend. Don't look for him to get a heck of a lot of snaps, but he may well be available to spell Jordan Hicks and keep the linebacking corps as fresh as possible as they try to disrupt Oklahoma's efficient offense.

In other linebacker news, true freshman Chet Moss--who had worked his way up to second on the depth chart in Week Two--is listed as questionable for OU. He has not yet recorded a tackle, and the Cotton Bowl in October is not exactly the easiest place for a true frosh to get his first significant looks, so either way he seems unlikely to see the field barring injuries to others.

Other than that, the only new information is that reserve WR John Harris is doubtful for the game with a foot injury, and of course Nolan Brewster has sadly had to give up football due to repeated head injuries.

It's 12:31 PM Eastern, the Longhorns are healthy, and OU still sucks.
