The Texas Longhorns will be without a key defensive presence for the rest of their Alamo Bowl showdown with the No. 11 Utah Utes, as the school has announced that junior safety Chris Brown has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

Brown was involved early, but could be seen walking gingerly off of the field following a Texas punt in the first quarter. True freshman defensive back Chris Adimora has seen the field in place of the injured Brown.

Texas is also without senior safety Brandon Jones, who suited up but is inactive today with an undisclosed injury.
