Texas quarterback David Ash will miss his third consecutive game due to lingering effects from a head injury suffered earlier this season, the school announced on Sunday. The junior has been ruled out for Saturday’s game against TCU.
Ash originally hurt himself during a week two loss to BYU. He also sat out the following game against Ole Miss, but returned to play against Kansas State, going 14 of 25 for 166 yards and a touchdown.
However, Ash missed the next two games against Iowa State and Oklahoma — both Longhorn wins — as he continued to recover from what looks like a bad concussion.
Senior Case McCoy has been starting in his stead since the K-State game and has thrown for 434 yards and three scores.
Expect McCoy to get the nod again against TCU, but don’t be surprised if promising freshman Tyrone Swoopes gets a series or two as the Longhorns start planning for the future.
