Texas QB Eh­linger leaves game with in­jury

The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - SPORTS -

AUSTIN, TEXAS >> Texas quar­ter­back Sam Eh­linger left Satur­day’s game against Bay­lor early in the first quar­ter with an in­jury to his throw­ing shoul­der.

Eh­linger ran for three touch­downs and passed for two scores in the No. 9 Longhorns’ win over Ok­la­homa last week. He ran twice on Texas’ open­ing drive against Bay­lor be­fore game of­fi­cials forced him to the side­line be­cause of blood. He was handed a towel for his right hand as he went to the side­line.

Eh­linger then jogged to the locker room with a mem­ber of the team med­i­cal staff. He re­turned in the sec­ond quar­ter with what ap­peared to be a ban­dage, but Texas later said Eh­linger had a shoul­der in­jury that would be eval­u­ated at half­time.

Shane Buechele led the Texas of­fense in his place.
