The Texas football team was hoping to get some good news on Tuesday.
Starting quarterback David Ash, who was out for the Old Miss game with head and shoulder injuries, was expected to be back at practice. But it didn't happen. He's still being evaluated and is listed as day-to-day.
This means there's a possibility that senior backup quarterback Case McCoy could be making his second straight start for the Horns against K-State. McCoy did average in UT's 44-to-23 loss to Ole Miss, throwing for nearly 200 yards and a touchdown.
"Case knows that he has to step up. He knows that he's in a starter role. He knows what he needs to do to get the job done to help us go out there and win. Right now he's doing a great job for us. Hopefully, he continues to do that and help us win," UT sophomore running back Jonathan Gray said.
Ash not the only injured guy to miss Tuesday's practice. Receiver Mike Davis didn't go either. He's still dealing with an injury and offensive lineman Mason Walters and Josh Cochran also didn't practice. It's not a good sign for the Horns.
