Steve Sarkisian updates the QB situation heading into Texas Tech

·1 min read

Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian announced four quarterbacks are set to travel and dress for the Texas Tech game this weekend.

Quinn Ewers, Hudson Card, Maalik Murphy and Charles Wright will make the trip to Lubbock with the team.

Ewers missed last week’s matchup with UTSA while dealing with an SC sprain suffered against Alabama. Ewers practiced on Monday and is questionable heading into the Big 12 opener.

Card completed 15 of 23 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in Texas’ win over UTSA. He is in line to receive the start if Ewers is unavailable.

Freshman quarterbacks Charles Wright and Maailk Murphy are also a part of the Longhorns’ 70-man travel roster. Murphy is returning from an injury of his own this week.

The overall health of the Texas quarterback room is improving — good news for the Longhorns offense going forward.
