One of the co-starters at running back for the Texas Longhorns is suffering from an injury sustained last weekend against the Oklahoma Sooners, as sophomore Kyle Porter is day-to-day following a chest injury.

Porter has consistently started with the first-team offense this season and had three carries for seven yards, along with two catches for 31 yards and a touchdown. On the season, he’s averaging 2.9 yards per carry, but has provided a boost to a struggling kick return unit by averaging 28 yards per return in the last two games.

If Porter isn’t available on Saturday, junior Chris Warren III and freshman Toneil Carter are both listed as co-starters at the position.
