Lake Travis standout Hudson Card, a 2020 Texas Longhorns quarterback commit, will likely miss the rest of his senior season after undergoing surgery to repair ligament damage caused by a turf toe injury suffered last Friday in a game against rival Westlake, Cavaliers head coach Hank Carter confirmed to multiple media outlets on Tuesday.

However, Card will seek a second opinion before having the surgery.

The longtime Longhorns pledge completed 20-of-31 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns in the 26-25 victory that snapped a two-game losing streak in the rivalry game dubbed The Battle of the Lakes.

“It’s okay,” Card said, according to the Austin-American Statesman. “It’s definitely not the news that I wanted to hear, but I’m just going to focus on getting better now. At least I ended on a memorable game.”

During a Tuesday media availability, Texas junior quarterback Sam Ehlinger offered a message to Card.

A 6’2.5, 179-pounder, Card committed to Texas in May of 2018 over more than 20 other offers, including Alabama, Michigan, and Ohio State, even though he primarily played wide receiver as a sophomore. When Card made the move back to quarterback as a junior, he was excellent, throwing for 50 touchdowns and more than 3,500 passing yards. He added 619 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.

A consensus four-star prospect, Card is ranked as the No. 67 player nationally and the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
