Tom Herman: Texas WR John Burt out vs. Tulsa, Kris Boyd probable

The Longhorns will be without a senior receiver vs. Tulsa and could be without starters in the secondary.

When the Texas Longhorns take the field on Saturday for a Week 2 meeting with the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes, they’ll do so without senior wide receiver John Burt, Tom Herman announced during his Monday afternoon press conference.

Burt missed the Longhorns season-opening loss to Maryland as well.

Elsewhere, senior cornerback Kris Boyd is working through an ankle sprain, although Herman noted that if he had to label the likelihood of Boyd playing on Saturday, it would be “probable.”

Senior cornerback Davante Davis and junior Brandon Jones are also among a minor injury-riddled secondary. Jones, who suffered a high ankle sprain on Saturday, is questionable for the Tulsa game, as is Davis who left the Maryland game with a neck injury. True freshman Anthony Cook is listed as Davis’ backup on the depth chart, although Kobe Boyce filled in during the Maryland game when Davis was sidelined. If Jones is unable to perform, true freshman B.J. Foster is listed as his backup, although Chris Brown may get the nod there.

True freshman linebacker Ayodele Adeoye and fellow true freshman safety DeMarvion Overshown remain out as well due to respective knee injuries.
