Texas' Jeffcoat Out For Season With Pectoral Injury, Ash Day-To-Day

Posted: Updated:

Texas junior defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a rupture of the right pectoral muscle in Saturday's 63-21 loss to Oklahoma in Dallas. This will be the second time Jeffcoat will have to undergo surgery to repair a pectoral muscle. He had his left pectoral muscle surgically repaired in January.

Jeffcoat is currently fifth on the team in tackles (31) and second on the team in sacks (4).

The news is better for quarterback David Ash, who suffered a left (non-throwing) wrist injury following a direct blow from a helmet. X-rays showed no fracture in Ash's wrist and he may be able to play Saturday against Baylor following a week of evaluation.

Defensive tackle Brandon Moore (neck sprain) and offensive tackle Donald Hawkins (left ankle) will also be evaulated throughout the week. Neither have been ruled out for Baylor.
