With the start of summer camp a little over three weeks away, Texas has revealed that a trio of starters won’t be able to fully participate at the beginning of the sessions.
In a release, UT announced that wide receivers Mike Davis and Jaxon Shipley along with cornerback Quandre Diggs will be limited during the first part of camp due to recent medical procedures. Diggs and Shipley underwent surgery on what the program described as lingering hip injuries, while Davis underwent hernia surgery recently.
All three players are expected to be at full speed for the season opener against New Mexico State Aug. 31.
Shipley and Davis are listed as starters heading into summer camp after finishing first and second, respectively, in receptions last season. Diggs is a preseason All-Big 12 first-team selection.
In addition to those three, safety Josh Turner will be limited for the start of camp due to a hip procedure as well. Turner is the No. 2 free safety on the most recent depth chart.
The news wasn’t all bad on the injury front as three other starters — defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat (right shoulder/pectoral muscle), offensive tackle Josh Cochran (lower left leg) and guard Trey Hopkins (lower left leg) — have been released to return to full participation.
