An already thin Texas Longhorns secondary took a major hit as cornerback Jalen Green left the game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the second quarter and will not return.

Green went into the game as the listed starter for the Longhorns, bur after making a physical tackle of Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard, Green was slow to get up. As he left the field, he was seen flexing his hand and wrist, but was ruled out with a shoulder injury.

The secondary was already missing two key pieces, as Texas entered the game without the services of B.J. Foster and DeMarvion Overshown, who were ruled out of the game Monday.
