The Smash Brothers are banged up after one game in conference play.

When the Texas Longhorns offense struggled in the second half of the 49-31 loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater on Saturday, it was without the Smash Brothers — junior running back D’Onta Foreman and sophomore running back Chris Warren.

The latter didn’t return to the game after halftime after gaining 106 yards on 10 carries, including a 46-yard run. In his post-game press conference, head coach Charlie Strong said that Warren was hit near his knee, but does not yet know the significance of the injury.

If it’s only a bruise, Warren may be able to return next week for the Red River Showdown against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cotton Bowl.

Foreman said he suffered an abdomen injury on a 68-yard touchdown run in the third quarter when Oklahoma State defensive back Ramon Richards attempted to strip the ball from Foreman deep in the end zone and sent the Texas running back crashing into the corner of the end zone.

Richards didn’t receive a penalty on the play, but he was able to effectively remove Foreman from the game, as the big running back went down grabbing his right side on the next play without contact.

After the game, Foreman did say that he expects to be return next week.

One player who didn’t travel with the team to Stillwater was senior wide receiver Jacorey Warrick, who reportedly has a nagging hamstring injury that kept him out of the game.

Since the Longhorns passing offense struggled for most of the game outside of a catch and run by junior Dorian Leonard on a hitch, it’s possible that the Longhorns missed Warrick significantly.
