Quinn Ewers Out vs. West Virginia, Targets Return vs. Oklahoma: Report

Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers will miss another game, as the signal caller will be out Saturday against West Virginia. However, Ewers is targeting to return next week in the Red River Rivalry, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

Ewers has been out since suffering a sprained SC joint against Alabama in Week 2. He has dressed each of the past two weeks for Texas, but has not played. If he returns against Oklahoma, that would be four weeks since his injury, and the earliest he was realistically projected to return following the injury, in which he was given a 4-6 week timeline for recovery.


Ewers was off to a red-hot start against Alabama, going 9-for-12 for 134 yards until the Crimson Tide’s Dallas Turner injured him on a hit in which the linebacker was flagged for roughing the passer. Alabama ended up winning the game 20-19 on a last-minute field goal.

Since Ewers’ injury, Hudson Card has taken over with up-and-down results. Card is completing 66% of his passes with three touchdowns and one interception, plus 620 passing yards on the season. Texas is 2-2 on the early season following last week’s loss to Texas Tech.

The Longhorns led the game 31-17 late in the third quarter before collapsing down the stretch and losing 37-34 in overtime.

Texas and West Virginia are both 2-2 coming into this game and 0-1 in Big 12 play. Kick off is set for 6:30 CT on Fox Sports 1.
