The Texas Longhorns will be without senior wide receiver Collin Johnson for a second straight game when the Horns take the field at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday evening against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Johnson has been dealing with a hamstring injury for several weeks. Against Rice, redshirt freshman Malcolm Epps replaced Johnson in the starting lineup and had four catches for 53 yards. Texas can also use sophomore Brennan Eagles at the X position.

Two other players who were listed as probable this week will be available for head coach Tom Herman — senior center Zach Shackelford (foot) and sophomore linebacker Joseph Ossai (shoulder). Shackelford re-aggravated a foot sprain that he originally injured during preseason camp, while Ossai suffered a sprain last week.

Sophomore safeties BJ Foster (hamstring) and DeMarvion Overshown (vertebrae) were ruled out earlier in the week.
