Even though there are still 11 days until the Texas Longhorns travel to Lawrence to take on the Kansa Jayhawks, head coach Tom Herman has already ruled junior running back Keaontay Ingram out for the game due to the high ankle sprain that he suffered on Halloween in Stillwater.

During the interview with Craig Way on 104.9 The Horn, Herman also provided an update on senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger as speculation swirls about his level of health — Herman acknowledged that Ehlinger took a helmet to his calf against Baylor, but said that he “came into the WVU game feeling as good as he’s felt the last few weeks.”

After suffering a high ankle sprain against West Virginia, redshirt sophomore nose tackle Keondre Coburn could return to practice as early as Sunday, while redshirt junior Jack/defensive end Reese Leitao will wear a club wrap over his fractured hand following surgery.

Meanwhile, redshirt freshman wide receiver Jordan Whittington is expected to play against Kansas for the first time since he suffered a strained hip flexor against Okahoma in the Cotton Bowl last month. He’s missed the last three games.

Due to the AC sprain that redshirt sophomore wide receiver Joshua Moore suffered against the Mountaineers, his shoulder is currently in a sling. Freshman wide receiver Kelvontay Dixon, who sat out on Saturday with a toe injury, is expected back at practice on Sunday or Tuesday.
