Report updates Quinn Ewers' injury status after leaving game versus Alabama early
Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers is expected to be out 4-6 weeks, per ESPN’s Pete Thamel.
Ewers picked up an SC sprain in the first quarter of the game against Alabama on Saturday.
Ewers, a freshman, had an MRI done on Saturday that confirmed the diagnosis and he is apparently experiencing significant pain. Through 2 games this season, Ewers has picked up 359 yards and 2 touchdowns.
After Ewers injury on Saturday, sophomore Hudson Card stepped in and threw for 158 yards, but he too was obviously in pain late in the game Saturday.
Despite Ewers’s injury and Card’s pain, Texas took Alabama to the final minute. The Longhorns led 19-17 in the final minute and a half, but veteran quarterback Jalen Hurts marched down the field and Alabama made a field goal to take the lead with 10 seconds left.
Card will likely be the starter next week for Texas as the Longhorns take on UT San Antonio.
