After leaving the Longhorns 37-14 win over No. 22 USC early with an apparent foot injury, Texas junior B-Backer Malcolm Roach has been diagnosed with a fractured foot and will miss 6-8 weeks, Texas head coach Tom Herman announced on Monday.

Roach will undergo surgery on Wednesday.

Elsewhere on the injury front, starting center Zach Shackelford, who is currently working through a foot sprain, is listed as doubtful, per Herman. Freshman wide receiver Brennan Eagles is doubtful as well due to a hamstring injury. Freshman safety DeMarvion Overshown is probably a week or two away from returning to the field as he recovers from a knee injury, per Herman.

On a more positive note, after missing the USC game with a MCL strain and a bone bruise, Texas freshman running back Keaontay Ingram has been upgraded to questionable. Herman said on Sunday, Ingram “had a good day of running straight ahead.”

Herman said senior wide receiver John Burt, who has missed the first three games of the season with a knee injury, will “participate in drills as tolerated.”
