Texas QB Ehlinger leaves game with injury
Ehlinger ran for three touchdowns and passed for two scores in the No. 9 Longhorns’ win over Oklahoma last week. He ran twice on Texas’ opening drive against Baylor before game officials forced him to the sideline because of blood. He was handed a towel for his right hand as he went to the sideline.
Ehlinger then jogged to the locker room with a member of the team medical staff. He returned to the sideline in the second quarter with what appeared to be a bandage on his hand, but Texas then announced he had a shoulder injury. The team said at halftime that Ehlinger would not return.
Shane Buechele led the Texas offense in his place.
