According to multiple reports, Texas Longhorns senior wide receiver Jaxon Shipley is expected to play against the UCLA Bruins on Saturday.

On Saturday afternoon, Kirk Bohls tweeted that Shipley was going to be a game-time decision.

Earlier in the week, Shipley was listed as questionable for the game after the school revealed that he suffered a head injury in the blowout loss against the BYU Cougars last weekend. He got up slowly and subsequently left the field after taking a hard hit late in the game.

He's the team's second-leading receiver with 11 catches for 79 yards, but missed most of fall camp with a hamstring injury that has appeared to limit his explosiveness.
