Reports: Texas QB Quinn Ewers (shoulder) to miss multiple games


Texas Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers has a joint sprain in his right (throwing) shoulder and will miss time, though he's expected to return this season, according to multiple media reports.

Ewers, a sophomore, sustained a grade 2 AC joint sprain in Saturday night's 31-24 win at Houston. He was scrambling in the third quarter with the game tied at 21 when he lowered his shoulder to take on a Houston defender.

Ewers finished the 11-play drive, which ended with Bert Auburn kicking a 25-yard field goal, but he did not return. Ewers went 23-of-29 passing for 211 yards and two touchdowns. He has completed 63.5 percent of his passes (323 of 509) for 4,092 yards and 28 TDs in 17 career games with Texas.

Redshirt freshman Maalik Murphy took over under center on Saturday and completed 1 of 2 passes for 7 yards.

Options to start next Saturday's home game against BYU would appear to be the little-used Murphy or highly touted true freshman Arch Manning, a nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning.

No. 7 Texas (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) is one of four teams tied for second in the conference behind unbeaten Oklahoma (7-0, 4-0).
