Four Longhorns have injury scares in first scrimmage

·1 min read

Texas entered Saturday relatively healthy. After the scrimmage, the Longhorns added four players to the injury report.

Roschon Johnson, Isaiah Neyor, Jahdae Barron and Junior Angilau were named among players whose practice ended early. We will find out Monday if their exits from practice were more precautionary or cause for concern.

Johnson and Angilau enter what would likely be the final season for each player in Austin. Both have much to gain by a strong showing this year.

Many believe Johnson is an NFL running back, while Angilau has the experience to command scouts’ attention. Both upperclassmen are regarded as vocal leaders. Their presence and absence will undoubtedly be felt by their teammates.

Isaiah Neyor figured to play an integral role in the Texas offense as well this season. The Wyoming transfer has been one of the team’s best players this offseason.

Barron, of course, is among the more versatile defensive backs on the team.

While its not yet cause for panic, the reports of potential injuries are noteworthy. Steve Sarkisian will address injury concerns at his media availability on Monday.
