Texas QB Onyegbule self-reports tearing his ACL and ligaments


The first day of the work week has not been a good one for the injury reports around fall camps. The latest hit comes from Austin, Texas, where senior Texas Longhorns quarterback Miles Onyegblue has announced via Facebook he has suffered a torn ACL and tears in other ligaments. The injuries will keep him inactive for the 2014 season.

Onyegblue made a position change this offseason to quarterback from tight end, but there was not much to be expected from him on the playing field this fall for Charlie Strong‘s Longhorns. As Burnt Orange Nation suggests, this could likely be the end of Onyegblue’s college playing career as a medical redshirt may not even come into question.

The Texas quarterback situation remains the same as it has, with David Ash the potential starter and Tyrone Swoopes and freshman Jerrod Heard making a push for depth chart positioning.

Earlier today we learned USC lost a linebacker for the season and Penn State put a tight end on the shelf indefinitely.

Once again, a pair of key contributors will be sidelined for Texas when Baylor comes to Austin on Saturday.

For the third straight week, running back Malcolm Brown will sit with an ankle injury, and for the fourth straight game, linebacker Jordan Hicks is out with a hip injury. UT made the announcement Friday evening. Also out for the game are fullback Alex de la Torre, defensive back Sheroid Evans and tight end Miles Onyegbule.

Brown was the team’s second-leading rusher before spraining his ankle in a win over Oklahoma State last month. Before his injury against Ole Miss, Hicks led the team in tackles with 23 tackles and was tied for second on the team in tackles for loss.

Quarterback David Ash, who suffered a bruised wrist in last week’s loss to Oklahoma, will play against the Bears.
