Sam Ehlinger Injury Update: Full Story & Must-See Details

The Texas football team is dealing with some injury issues under center. Sam Ehlinger, the Longhorns’ quarterback, is currently dealing with a shoulder injury. Last week, Ehlinger was unable to play for the entire game. Now, he is questionable for this weekend’s regular-season finale against Kansas.

“It’s not as severe as last time,” head coach Tom Herman said during his weekly press conference, via 247 Sports. “He even said it feels different. He wanted to go back in the game (against Iowa State), where against Baylor he couldn’t even lift his arm up. So I think you will see a steady progression (of working Ehlinger back into practice).”

Ehlinger was recently limited.

Practice just got done today and Texas QB Sam Ehlinger participated, throwing for the first time since Saturday. Coaches were cautious with his volume of throws and the medical staff will continue to monitor his shoulder. #HookEm

From the report:

A lot is riding on the Longhorns’ regular-season finale Friday, including the chance to play for a conference title, which is something the Texas Football program has not accomplished since 2009. Texas is currently tied with West Virginia at No. 2 in Big 12 standings, and if it can pull off a win over Kansas come Friday morning, the Longhorns would secure their spot in the Big 12 Championship game regardless of the outcome of the remaining conference match ups this weekend.

This season, Ehlinger has thrown for 2,620 yards, 21 touchdowns, and two interceptions.
