Texas Longhorns quarterback David Ash was injured again in the season opener and will miss this week's game against BYU.
Head coach Charlie Strong told reporters Monday that Ash took a hit during the first quarter of Texas' 38-7 win over North Texas, and appeared fine. Texas trainers then received a call from Ash in the middle of the night. Strong said that some of the postgame symptoms Ash exhibited were headaches and dizziness.
Ash missed 10 games last season with concussion symptoms.
“We would never jeopardize a young man's health for the good of the football team,” Strong said.
Sophomore Tyrone Swoopes will start for Texas (1-0) against BYU (1-0) on Saturday. Swoopes, who was beaten out by Ash in camp, played six games as a true freshman in 2013, completing five passes for 26 yards and running 20 times for 79 yards.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
