Texas QB David Ash ruled out for TCU game

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.

    David Ash will probably have to “retire” from football, like David Piland from Houston, Ryan Swoope, formerly of A&M, and countless others did.

    it appears his head injury is more severe than first thought, and there is no way that UT can put this kid in harms way again.

    All he needs to do is go watch the frontline documentary on the NFL concussion issue “League of Denial”
