A shoulder injury now looks to have a final word for redshirt freshman Texas football quarterback Quinn Ewers as his team takes on the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. An update for this shoulder injury that Ewers suffered in the first half against Alabama was updated early in the second half.

According to a report from ESPN’s Pete Thamel on Twitter on the afternoon of Sep. 10, Ewers “will not return to today’s game against Alabama”. Thamel also mentioned that Ewers “went to the locker room for an X-Ray and will not play again today”.

It was evident that Ewers was not going to lead Texas on the first drive of the second half for the Longhorns as he was not on the field when the rest of the team took to the field at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to kickoff the third quarter.

A few minutes into the second half, Ewers was finally seen on the sidelines out of his uniform.

Ewers finished up this game by completing nine of his 12 passing attempts for 134 passing yards, no passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Prior to exiting this game with the shoulder injury, Ewers had completed a really nice deep ball that went for 46 yards to star sophomore wide receiver Xavier Worthy.

Texas scored their lone touchdown in the first half a few snaps after Ewers left the game. Card handed the ball off to star junior running back Bijan Robinson for a short touchdown run that tied the game up at 10 at the time.
