One of the most impactful injuries for Texas football that surfaced during Week 11 saw senior cornerback D’Shawn Jamison miss the matchup on Nov. 12 at home against the TCU Horned Frogs. The news came about late last week that Jamison could be out for the Texas-TCU game in Week 11 thanks to an injury issue.

It sounds like Jamison missed the game last weekend due to a concussion. That was the first game that Jamison missed this season. And it looks like it could wind up being the only game that he misses, given what we’re hearing in terms of his status for Week 12.

According to a report from Horns247 on Nov. 17 (paid content), Jamison appears to be “good to go” to return this weekend for Texas as they face the Kansas Jayhawks on the road. This is great news for Texas, as Jamison can help this secondary match up well against a Kansas offense that is capable of going off for multiple explosive plays in a single game.

Texas football should see CB D’Shawn Jamison make his return vs. Kansas

Moreover, in place of the injured Jamison last weekend against TCU, a rotating group of younger corners filled in admirably. A group that included true freshman Terrance Brooks and sophomore Jamier Johnson performed well in place of the absent Jamison against a high-powered TCU offense.

In the loss to TCU, the Texas defense allowed just 17 points and 124 passing yards against a team that was averaging nearly 280 passing yards and more than 41 points per game heading into Week 11.

Texas’ defense will need to be ready for a big challenge again when it faces a massively improved Kansas offense this weekend. Kansas ranks 17th in the FBS in scoring offense, putting up 36.9 points per game. And it ranks in the top 20 in the FBS in terms of yards per play, at a whopping 7.3.

It’s clear that the return of Jamison will be valuable for the Texas defense. Jamison and the Longhorns will be seeking their seventh win on the season when they face Kansas on the road in Lawrence on Nov. 19, with the kickoff time set for 2:30 p.m. CT.
