It’s been two months since Texas linebacker Jordan Hicks suffered a groin/hip injury in a win against Ole Miss. Since that game, Hicks has basically been ruled out on a weekly basis, but there was never any official word from Mack Brown that his star linebacker would be done for the season and pursue a medical redshirt.
A swift month or so later than it should have, that announcement has finally come. Brown said Monday that Hicks has been ruled out for the year by medical staff with two games left against TCU and Kansas State. He will apply for a medical redshirt. Hicks is only a junior and played in just the first three games this season. If the waiver is granted, he will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Before suffering his injury, Hicks led the team with 23 tackles and was tied for second in tackles for loss with three.
