Spring practice is officially underway. Like, officially officially.

Included among the recently healthy Texas Longhorns is star returning wide receiver Xavier Worthy, who, according to head coach Steve Sarkisian, played with a broken hand in 2022.

“One guy that was great to have back out there today — which you guys didn’t know about and I tried to protect this throughout the season — but Xavier had a broken hand essentially the second half of the season,” Sarkisian said, per 247Sports. “He was in a cast for about eight weeks roughly, so to get him back out there practicing full speed was awesome.”
