Texas QB Sam Ehlinger sidelined after aggravating shoulder injury

Sam Ehlinger

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger aggravated a shoulder injury and failed to start the third quarter against Iowa State.

Ehlinger took a nasty hit to the shoulder on a scramble late in the first half and left the game. He appeared on the sideline after halftime, but was still replaced by backup Shane Buechele to start the second half.

With the Longhorns comfortably ahead, there didn’t seem to be much motivation to get Ehlinger back in the game, allowing him to rest and hopefully recover.

Ehlinger took a nasty injury to the same shoulder last month, but thanks to a well-timed bye week, he didn’t miss any further action. Texas has a short week as they play again Friday, which could leave the quarterback’s status in doubt, but it’s a winnable game against Kansas.
