Yes, things could and possibly are getting worse.

The Texas Longhorns may be without another offensive starter against the UCLA Bruins on Saturday in Arlington, as the school announced on Tuesday afternoon that senior wide receiver Jaxon Shipley is questionable after sustaining a head injury against the BYU Cougars.

Shipley left the field and headed to the locker room late in the game against the Cougars after a tackle that appeared to cause Shipley's head to hit the ground. When he stood up, he looked a little bit wobbly. On Monday evening, an Orangebloods report indicated that Shipley could miss practice time and possibly the upcoming game.

The team's second-leading receiver so far this season with 11 catches for 79 yards, Shipley missed most of fall camp with a hamstring injury and hasn't quite looked as explosive as he has in the past.

Texas has already been working to replace the leading receiver from 2013, Mike Davis, while working through the losses of junior wide receiver Kendall Sanders and redshirt freshman wide receiver Montrel Meander, who was dismissed after being charged with felony sexual assault.

Shipley is still listed atop the depth chart for UCLA at H receiver position, backed up by sophomore walk on Ty Templin and true freshman Armanti Foreman.
