The injury list for Texas football remains relatively light as the Horns travel to Ames to look to avenge the longest losing streak to Iowa State in Texas football history. The injuries this week:

  • The big news over the past two weeks was Garrett Gilbert's shoulder surgery which will put him out for the rest of the year and could pave the way for a medical redshirt and transfer. Worry not, Horn fans, because you can get a #7 jersey at the Co-op for half off!
  • Freshman WR John Harris, the first Longhorn to throw a TD pass this season, has a hurt foot and is out indefinitely. Losing Harris isn't a huge deal for the WR rotation, especially with the return of Marquise Goodwin. Harris was, however, a QB in high school and many figured he would be the emergency quarterback should something happen to David Ash or Case McCoy.
  • Finally, Texas lost a safety this week as Nolan Brewster departed the program due to concussion concerns. The Horns get one back, however, as Senior Christian Scott returns after a three game suspension following a misdemeanor assault incident over the summer. Scott started ten games a year ago but there is no telling how much he'll play in his first week back.
