David Ash ‘seems to be fine’ after wrist injury

Texas has lost one of its best individual defensive players for the season in Jackson Jeffcoat because of a right pectoral rupture he suffered in last Saturday’s loss to Oklahoma. Thankfully for the Longhorns, an injury to quarterback David Ash sustained in the same game isn’t anywhere close to being as serious.

At least that’s the way Mack Brown made it out to be during his Monday teleconference.

David Ash seems to be fine,” Brown said. “He’s just got a bruise on his left wrist.”

Ash had to leave the game in the fourth quarter down 49-8 because of the injury and did not return. He did, however, practice Sunday. Barring a major setback, he’ll be ready to go this weekend against Baylor.

Texas has been hit with a string of injuries in recent weeks. In addition to Jeffcoat, linebacker Jordan Hicks (hip) and running back Malcolm Brown (ankle) have missed games this season. Kicker Anthony Fera is only recently returning from a groin injury that sidelined him through the early portion of the season.

    He couldn’t finish the game Saturday but practiced on Sunday? It sounds like he got pulled, and if that was the case why did Mack wait until the fourth quarter to do it. I’m still angered by what happened on Saturday!

    It probably won’t matter if they can’t fix the sorry defense and actually make a couple of tackles a game.

    @13datsyuk13

    you obviously didnt see his wrist on the sideline in the 4th Q. It looked broken and had a lump the size of a golfball on it.

    And @geraldthecat
    Ash is not the problem, Mack Brown is. His teams are soft and he instructed the asst coaches to simplify the game plan Saturday. Oklahoma came out and punched Texas in the mouth. They didnt come to play and thats a reflection of the HC.

    No I didn’t get to see the 4th quarter. ABC was nice enough to spare me and moved on to a different game.

    If Texas can’t solve their woes on defence and special team coverage it won’t matter. They’re heading for a five game loss season at best. Hook’em Horns!!
