With injuries and special teams issues, the Longhorns are likely to have some changes on the depth chart for Saturday’s game.

Continuing the trend this season, head coach Steve Sarkisian did not release a depth chart for the No. 21 Texas Longhorns during game week prior to Saturday’s contest against the UTSA Roadrunners at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

So here’s a look at what the depth chart may look like when reporters arrive on the eighth floor of Belmont Hall in a few hours.

  • With redshirt freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers expected to miss several weeks with his SC sprain, redshirt sophomore quarterback Hudson Card (ankle) is expected to get the start with redshirt freshman quarterback Charles Wright serving as his backup and redshirt freshman walk-on Cole Lourd serving as the third-string player.
  • Junior Bijan Robinson (shoulder) should receive the start at running back, but Sarkisian may want to limit his carries in favor of senior running back Roschon Johnson, who could also see time in the Wildcat formation.
  • No changes on the rest of the offense, but perhaps sophomore wide receiver Agiye Hall will make his debut for the Longhorns.
  • The projection here is that senior cornerback D’Shawn Jamison will miss the game with his ankle injury, affording sophomore cornerback Jamier Johnson his first start with freshman Terrance Brooks as his backup.
  • The biggest changes could come on special teams. Walk-on punter Daniel Trejo attempted all five punts against Alabama over redshirt freshman Isaac Pearson. On the field-goal unit, Card served as the holder after Pearson struggled to handle a snap in the opener. If the Texas coaches want to keep Card off that unit, Trejo could step into that role. And it might be time for a change at deep snapper after senior Zach Edwards had the bad snap that contributed to the miss before halftime against the Crimson Tide — freshman Lance St. Louis could make his debut.
