During his Monday media availability, Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman provided the usual round of injury updates following Saturday’s game against the West Virginia Mountaineers.

The biggest news is that senior wide receiver Collin Johnson was a full participant in practice on Sunday and is expected to play as long as he doesn’t experience any setbacks. Herman said that Johnson wasn’t right during the LSU game, but the medical staff thought his hamstring injury was minor. Unfortunately for Johnson, though, he suffered a setback on the Sunday before the Oklahoma State game.

“I think we knew this timetable was probably the most realistic one,” Herman said.

Junior tight end Cade Brewer was evaluated for a head injury following the game, but he did not suffer a concussion.

One other player banged up during that game, junior safety Chris Brown, is recovering from his thigh contusion and will practice on Tuesday.

Sophomore safety DeMarvion Overshown (vertebrae) “ran really, really well on the side” during Sunday’s practice, so the plan is for him to practice on Tuesday, as well. Texas will ramp up his practice reps slowly, but the expectation is for him to be available against Oklahoma barring any setbacks.

Don’t expect freshman running back Jordan Whittington to play against the Sooners, though — he’s doubtful to return this weekend. However, Herman did say that he’s progressing well and hasn’t experienced any setbacks.
