Texas Football Injury Report: Week Two

New, comments

[Update]: The team released the news on Friday afternoon that freshman linebacker Chet Moss, who recently moved back to linebacker after working for part of fall practice at fullback, will miss the game with a back injury. --GoBR--

The Longhorns will be very near full strength against BYU tomorrow, and possibly even better than full strength at wideout. As TXStampede noted earlier this week on BON, Marquise Goodwin has changed his mind and returned to the football team after initially planning to take the season off as a redshirt in order to focus entirely on running track. That means he comes back to pigskin in top physical condition despite missing fall camp. However, it goes without saying that he's unlikely to pick up the Harsin/Applewhite offense in just one week of practice. Goodwin is unlikely to be a significant factor on offense this week, but he's available and that's better than last week. Plus, he can step right in on special teams and add a ton of speed if the coaches so choose.

The only other change from last Friday to this one is that second string DT Ashton Dorsey was suspended for the Rice game and it's unclear whether he's available for the BYU matchup or not. He is still listed as second on the depth chart, so he may have been reinstated; no direct announcement (that we could find, anyway) seems to have been made. Mack Brown referred to Dorsey as having been "suspended for the game" in reference to Rice, so all signs point to the DT being back in the rotation tomorrow.

No new injuries this week in practice or against Rice, so the Longhorns are healthy for Bronco's boys. Hook 'em!
