Texas Longhorns Hammered by Injury Bug vs. Oklahoma State

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Texas

Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman announced several injuries to some key players suffered in Saturday night’s win over Oklahoma State.

Safety Caden Sterns is a first-team All-Big 12 selection and the league’s defensive freshman of the year in 2018, will miss four weeks with a sprained knee. He’s currently the team leader with 29 tackles. Cornerback and fellow starter Jalen Green is out at least four weeks with a dislocated shoulder.

Junior Josh Thompson, listed as Texas’ starting nickel back, will miss “significant” time with a broken foot, Herman said.


Last on the list, but not least, is linebacker Marcus Tillman Jr., who will miss the rest of the season with a sprained knee.

Texas is off this week before traveling to take on West Virginia next week. Herman added defensive backs B.J. Foster (hamstring) and DeMarvion Overshown (back) will be back for that contest.
