On Saturday, as the Texas Longhorns welcomed family members to the football program’s second scrimmage, redshirt freshman tight end Rob Cummins, who used to go by Max, suffered a knee injury, the school announced.

The 6’5, 260-pounder is now undergoing treatment and evaluation until the medical staff determines the extent of his injury. At that point, the school will provide any further information.

The Fort Worth All-Saints Episcopal product redshirted last season after he was a late addition to head coach Tom Herman’s transition class as a defensive end. Due to a lack of depth at tight end, Cummins made the move to offense in February.

Currently working behind senior Andrew Beck, sophomore Cade Brewer, and perhaps fellow redshirt freshman Reese Leitao, Cummins isn’t expected to compete for a starting role this season, but does provide the pure size that Herman prefers at the position.
