Jake Majors, C
The most serious injury Texas suffered on offense against the Sooners last weekend was senior center Jake Majors. After taking just four offensive snaps in Red River, Majors suffered an unfortunate ankle injury that kept him out for the rest of the game.
Majors suffered a high-ankle sprain that was initially reported to keep him out for a “few weeks”. During his press conference on Oct. 9, Sark mentioned that the staff will know more about Majors’ injury and recovery timeline by the end of this week.
The initial report we discussed on Oct. 8 cited the possibility of Majors returning by early November. If that is the case, that would mean Majors misses Texas’ next two games, against Houston on the road on Oct. 21 and the BYU Cougars at home on Oct. 28.
A potential early-November return would see Majors return to the Longhorns’ offensive line on Nov. 4 at home against the Kansas State Wildcats. But that’s based on speculation from a prior report late last weekend.
In Majors’ absence, offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and the Longhorns gave redshirt freshman center Connor Robertson the starting reps to anchor the O-Line. Robertson took 75 offensive snaps against the Sooners, allowing four quarterback pressures, no QB hits and no sacks.
