The fallout of the thrilling matchup this weekend between Texas football and the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide is still taking shape. And it looks like the most impactful news coming out of the weekend, at least in the last 24 hours or so for Texas, has to do with the abundance of injury updates.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns experienced multiple injuries coming out of that tough one-point loss to head coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide this weekend.

The most notable of the injury updates obviously came with the news that redshirt freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers is set to miss the next four-to-six weeks after suffering a clavicle sprain against Alabama. Ewers left the game after a hit from sophomore edge rusher Dallas Turner that occurred around the end of the first quarter.

Sark and the Longhorns also experienced injuries to the likes of junior quarterback Hudson Card, senior cornerback D’Shawn Jamison, and even star junior running back Bijan Robinson.

Various updates from Inside Texas and Orangebloods on Sep. 11 indicate that Bijan is going to get a shoulder injury stemming from this loss to Alabama further evaluated in the next day or so. Bijan is reportedly going to get another MRI on this upper-body injury.

We don’t have a definitive word yet on how severe this injury to Bijan could be. He played through the entire game for the Longhorns against the Crimson Tide on Sep. 11. In fact, he tied for the second-most rushing attempts in a single game in his collegiate career in this meeting with Alabama, with 21.

This might wind up being more of a precautionary measure, but it is yet another injury worth watching heading into the third week of the regular season.

We will continue to monitor this emerging storyline as the nature of Bijan’s injury sees more developments take place in the next few days. He will obviously be a key player for this Texas offense heading into a matchup against a good Group of Five team in the UTSA Roadrunners next weekend.
