Texas junior defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat sustained a right pectoral muscle rupture in the Oklahoma game, will undergo surgery and is out for the season, Texas’ Head Athletic Trainer for Football Kenny Boyd said on Sunday. It is not the same pectoral muscle Jeffcoat injured in 2011. He had surgery to repair his left pectoral muscle last January and has fully recovered from that injury.

Sophomore quarterback David Ash sustained a left wrist injury versus the Sooners. His injury occurred during a direct helmet blow to his wrist that resulted in swelling but initial x-rays show no fracture. He will continue to be evaluated during the week, but has not been ruled out for the Baylor game.

Junior defensive tackle Brandon Moore (neck sprain) and junior offensive tackle Donald Hawkins (left ankle) will be evaluated during the week to determine their availability for the Baylor game, Boyd added. Hawkins sprained his ankle in the first half of the Oklahoma game and the medical staff did not clear him to return.
