The Texas Longhorns went on the road and recorded a 42-31 win over the West Virginia Mountaineers on Saturday afternoon, but the victory didn’t come without a handful of minor injuries to key contributors.

Nickel back B.J. Foster, who missed the previous two games with a hamstring injury, suffered a stinger early in the game on a huge hit on Kennedy McKoy, which was ultimately reviewed for targeting. However, the targeting call was reversed and after spending some time in the medical tent, Foster did return and notched an interception.

Running back Keaontay Ingram, too, suffered a stinger in his neck that sent him to the medical tent after attempting to pick up a block on VanDarius Cowan. After being evaluated, Ingram also returned to the field for the second half.

Tight end Reese Leitao also suffered a stinger, but returned to the game.

Fellow tight end Cade Brewer was involved in a helmet-to-helmet hit and will be evaluated on Sunday, per head coach Tom Herman.

Elsewhere in an already battered Texas secondary, safety Chris Brown suffered a “pretty significant thigh contusion,” per Herman, who noted that though he’s not a doctor, he expects that ailment to heal pretty quickly.
