MySanAntonio.com Johnson, Ossai, Shackelford all probable for Longhorns' Big 12 opener vs. Oklahoma State


Recommended Posts

AUSTIN – Barring any unforeseen setbacks, No. 12 Texas (2-1) center Zach Shackelford (foot), receiver Collin Johnson (hamstring) and linebacker Joseph Ossai (shoulder) will be active for Saturday’s Big 12 opener against Oklahoma State (3-0) and Royal-Memorial Stadium.

“The three guys you're all going to want to know - Zach Shackelford, Collin Johnson and Joseph Ossai - are all probable,” coach Tom Herman said Monday. “Zach will be fairly limited in practice tomorrow.

“Joseph Ossai sprained his shoulder. He will put a brace on and practice tomorrow. Collin will practice tomorrow as well.”

Texas opted to sit Johnson for last Saturday’s game against Rice at NRG Stadium. His recovery was more important than his field presence in a 48-13 victory.

Shackelford sustained a foot injury late in the first half and did not return after heading back to the locker room for examination. He was spotted in a walking boot after the game, but the injury is not deemed serious enough to keep him out against the Cowboys.

Ossai suffered a shoulder injury early in the fourth quarter and “would not have been able to return,” per Herman. But results from an MRI Sunday were positive enough that he is expected to suit up against a potent Oklahoma State offense.

Saturday’s game between the Longhorns and Cowboys kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on ABC.
