AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Follow-up tests Sunday confirmed Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger has a sprained throwing shoulder.
Ehlinger left the Longhorns' 23-17 win over Baylor on Saturday on Texas' first possession of the game and did not return. He had taken a couple of hits on runs on the Longhorns' opening drive. Shane Buechele passed for 184 yards and a touchdown to lead Texas to the win.
Texas officials said an MRI exam confirmed the initial sprain diagnosis. Ehlinger will rest his shoulder this week as No. 7 Texas (6-1, 4-0 Big 12) has an open date and doesn't play again until Oct. 27 at Oklahoma State.
