For a second straight week, the status of Texas Longhorns senior wide receiver Collin Johnson for Saturday’s game against the Baylor Bears will be a game-time decision, head coach Tom Herman said after practice on Thursday.

Johnson suffered a hamstring injury against Kansas State and didn’t play last week against Iowa State. Earlier in the season, he missed a month with a similar issue.

Sophomore safety BJ Foster (neck) is also a game-time decision after he was limited during practice this week. Foster left the game in Ames, but was eventually able to return.

There’s also a chance that freshman running back Jordan Whittington (sports hernia) could see the field for the first time since the season opener, but that will depend on how he does in pre-game warmups, as well. He’s still dealing with some pain, swelling, and scar tissue after his surgery in early September.

Herman confirmed that sophomore cornerback Anthony Cook (knee) will miss the Baylor game.
