While it’s still unclear if Oklahoma State quarterback Wes Lunt will play in Saturday’s game against Texas, the status of three Longhorns is less ambiguous.
UT announced Friday that linebacker Jordan Hicks, kicker Anthony Fera and defensive tackle Brandon Moore have not made the trip to Stillwater and will not play tomorrow night. Hicks is still nursing a hip injury he suffered against Ole Miss and Fera, a Penn State transfer, has yet to play this season because of a groin injury. Moore is reportedly under the weather and is the surprising absence of the three.
Hicks leads the team in tackles with 23 tackles and is tied for second on the team (along with Moore) in tackles for loss with three. Fera has yet to play a game this season.
The Longhorns have been working around Fera’s absence this year, but losing arguably two of its best defenders could be problematic on the road.
