The Texas Longhorns suffered a handful of injuries against the California Golden Bears on Saturday, but two of those players should return to practice on Tuesday, according to head coach Charlie Strong.

Sophomore safety Jason Hall left the game shortly after junior safety Dylan Haines was ejected for targeting. The shoulder injury suffered by Hall was too serious to allow him to return, but shouldn't be so serious that he misses the game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys next weekend.

Freshman running back Chris Warren was in a boot after the game due to an ankle injury. Look for him back in his role as the No. 3 running back and red-zone blocker in the two-running back sets that new play caller Jay Norvell likes to use close to the goal line.

The prognosis isn't as clear for redshirt freshman linebacker Edwin Freeman. Strong said that Freeman will have his shoulder injury evaluated on Monday.

The other major injury of note is the ankle of senior wide receiver Marcus Johnson. The leading return pass-catcher from 2014 suffered a sprain during the Notre Dame game, missed the Rice game, and dressed for Cal, but did not play. He may make his return this weekend.
