The school has not yet released any information about the quarterback's status since Monday.

[Update]: No press conference from Mack Brown today since the team is traveling, but the school did confirm that Ash is out against Iowa State and won't travel with the team. Junior offensive tackle Josh Cochran is also out for a second straight game, while senior wide receiver Mike Davis is a game-time decision. As reported earlier in the week, sophomore offensive weapon Daje Johnson will play, as will junior tight end Greg Daniels, who was not included on the Wednesday injury report.

The recurrence of symptoms from the head injury Texas Longhorns quarterback David Ash suffered against Kansas State will keep him out of the Iowa State game Thursday night, according to a report from Orangebloods and a later report from Horns247.

Ash originally suffered the concussion against BYU late in the season's second game and missed the contest against Ole Miss as a result. In fact, he was asked to stay away from the bright lights and loud noises of Darrell K Royal-Memorial Stadium when the Longhorns played the Rebels.

Head coach Mack Brown should provide an update on Ash during his Wednesday press conference after saying on Monday that Ash is day-to-day. There are currently no reports that the junior starter has practiced since the Kansas State game.

If Ash doesn't play, there were reports last week, including this one from Barking Carnival, that freshman Tyrone Swoopes was receiving heavy reps in practice, but Brown on Monday said that the Whitewright product has been experiencing some freshman mistakes in practice.

Senior quarterback Case McCoy remains Case McCoy, albeit currently a less turnover-prone version than what fans saw from the Baylor game in 2011 to his two-interception performance against Kansas State to end the 2012 regular season.
