Texas Longhorns starting right tackle Ken Perkins is currently day-to-day with a knee injury and may not be available for this weekend’s game against TCU. Chuck Carlton of The Dallas Morning News reported the development.
Head coach Charlie Strong offered little information on Perkins’ injury, which forced him out of last weekend’s loss to Oklahoma State.
“I just don’t know how serious it is,” Strong said.
After Perkins was forced from the game after taking a helmet to the knee, Texas’ strong-side protection collapsed. On 16 plays without Perkins, the Longhorns managed -11 yards.
Hopefully, against a strong TCU offense, Perkins will be strong enough to play so that Texas and quarterback Jerrod Heard will at least have a shot at keeping up against the Horned Frogs, who rank first in FBS in total offense and fourth in scoring.
Campus Sports will update Perkins’ status for the game as any new information regarding his knee becomes available.
