Report: Isaiah Neyor and Junior Angilau suffer season-ending injuries

·1 min read

Four players practice ended early due to injury on Saturday.

Running back Roschon Johnson, wide receiver Isaiah Neyor, offensive guard Junior Angilau and defensive back Jahdae Barron each left the field.

Geoff Ketchum of Orangebloods reports Neyor and Angilau will miss the 2022 season due to knee injuries. Detrimental news for the Longhorns.

Neyor was poised to have a major role in Texas’ offense after transferring from Wyoming in the offseason. He figured to be the No. 2 receiver behind Xavier Worthy. Pressure now moves to the rest of the wide receiver room to step up.

Angilau is the most experienced offensive lineman on the Longhorns’ roster. The fifth-year senior has started 34 games in his collegiate career and chose to return for the 2022 season. Losing Angilau is a killer blow for Kyle Flood’s offensive line unit.

Steve Sarkisian is expected to provide more details on the Texas injury report during his media availability after practice on Monday.
