A head injury that’s already cost David Ash one game will cost him another.

While Texas has yet to confirm it,‘s Chip Brown is reporting that David Ash will not play in Thursday night’s game against Iowa State due to the head injury.  Ash originally suffered the injury in the Week 2 loss to BYU and sat out the following week’s game against Ole Miss.  He returned to start the Sept. 21 win over Kansas State.

However, he was knocked out of the Wildcats game in the first half with a similar injury and did not return.

Case McCoy replaced the junior in the starting lineup vs. the Rebels and in the two games in which was sidelined, and will do the same against the Cyclones tomorrow night.

UPDATED 4:16 p.m. ET: Texas confirmed Wednesday afternoon that David Ash has been ruled out of the Iowa State game Thursday night and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Case McCoy.

    Am I the only one that can’t stand the Longhorn’s new helmets…. Use the logo or the number…. not both on the same side….

    The logo and number combination is only in use this season to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 NC team. They will go back to the logo only next year.

    Thank you… That seems like something you do for a game though… not the whole season…

    I did like when they had the numbers above th e logo but ghosted. That was kind of cool. Texas has been very conservative with their uniform. Maybe it’s time to have a little fun.
