Texas WR Troy Omeire tears ACL in scrimmage

Unfortunate injury news strikes for the Longhorns early in camp.

The injury bug has bit the Texas Longhorns early in preseason camp. Freshman wide receiver Troy Omeire has been generating a ton of buzz since reporting to campus and has been performing at a high level since camp started according to observers. Omeire is now expected to be sidelined indefinitely after suffering a knee injury yesterday during the team’s first scrimmage of camp.

Per Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods, Omeire tore his ACL during the scrimmage and has no time table for a return at this time.

On Sunday afternoon, the school confirmed the news after Omeire acknowledged on Twitter that some kind of injury occurred.

This is unfortunate break for the Longhorns as it was looking like Omeire was primed to be an early contributor when the season kicked off. The Longhorns do have good numbers at the position, so they are fortunate in that regard, but Omeire definitely had everybody excited to see how he would perform under the lights on Saturdays this fall.

Omeire will miss the 2020 season with the non-contact injury.
