AUSTIN, Texas (AP) The Texas Longhorns got a boost Monday when coach Tom Herman said three injured starters will likely play this week in the Big 12 opener against Oklahoma State.
Senior wide receiver Collin Johnson (hamstring), senior center Zach Shackelford (foot) and sophomore linebacker Joseph Ossai (shoulder) missed all or part of last week's 48-13 win over Rice.
Johnson sat out the game but has seven catches for 108 yards and a touchdown this season. Shackelford left in the second quarter after aggravating an foot injury from the preseason. He was on crutches after the game but Herman said he'll wear a brace and return to practice.
