Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger in concussion protocol

Texas HC Tom Herman indicated that redshirt freshman WR Reggie Hemphill-Mapps suffered a sprained knee against Oklahoma State on Saturday.

During the week leading up to Saturday's game against Oklahoma State, Ehlinger was "symptom-free", Herman said. The game ended when Ehlinger threw an interception on a pass he floated into the end zone. That's when the medical guys kind of noticed something off and he was complaining a little bit. Nothing concrete at that point Saturday night, gave him 24 hours.

"I have no idea [when Ehlinger suffered the head injury]", Herman said Monday. In that game, Ehlinger left for several plays in the fourth quarter to be evaluated on the sideline after a hard tackle, but was sent back in. Herman said following that game that the quarterback was evaluated for a concussion by team doctors after the hit but was cleared to return, which Ehlinger later did.

"At some point in the game against Oklahoma State something happened", Herman said.

Former Longhorns quarterback David Ash had his career cut short in 2014 after multiple episodes of concussion symptoms. He started the first game this season but had nagging shoulder and ankle injuries as Ehlinger took over the starting job. The freshman is a tough runner with a physical style that draws contact, and his running has become a heavy component in an offense that has struggled to score.

Ehlinger has been physically beaten up in the last two games, both losses.
