Texas QB Ehlinger leaves game with injury

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger left Saturday’s game against Baylor early in the first quarter with an injury to his throwing shoulder.

Ehlinger ran for three touchdowns and passed for two scores in the No. 9 Longhorns’ win over Oklahoma last week. He ran twice on Texas’ opening drive against Baylor before game officials forced him to the sideline because of blood. He was handed a towel for his right hand as he went to the sideline.

Ehlinger then jogged to the locker room with a member of the team medical staff. He returned in the second quarter with what appeared to be a bandage, but Texas later said Ehlinger had a shoulder injury that would be evaluated at halftime.

Shane Buechele led the Texas offense in his place.
