When the Texas Longhorns make the trip to Manhattan on Saturday to face off against the Kansas State Wildcats, freshman safety BJ Foster will not be with the team due a concussion that he suffered this week in practice.
However, head coach Tom Herman did say following Thursday’s practice that junior center Zach Shackelford will return to action after missing the last three games with a foot sprain, but may not start. Freshman running back Keaontay Ingram will also be available after suffering a hip pointer against TCU that compounded his injury issues — Ingram suffered a deep bone bruise in his knee against Tulsa and missed the USC game.
Freshman wide receiver Brennan Eagles, who didn’t play against TCU due to a hamstring issue, will travel with the team and is a game-time decision.
Another wide receiver is more doubtful, as senior John Burt may not be ready to return to action due to a foot issue that he suffered in preseason camp. Burt hasn’t played yet this season.
Sophomore offensive lineman Patrick Hudson still hasn’t practiced yet following heat-related issues several weeks ago and is going through return to play protocol.
Freshman linebacker/safety DeMarvion Overshown practice this week after suffering a knee injury is preseason camp and is ready to return, so it’s possible that he could see action on special teams.
