    Does anyone have an update on Watson and QB Sam Richardson? Know Richardson stated ankle was very sore post game during Friday interviews. Never heard how bad Jansen Watson was hurt. In my opinion we really need Watson healthy for Tech game next week. Tech's passing game is much better than UT's.

    I realize Nigel Tribune is young and talented, but he was a deer in the headlights versus Mike Davis before we switched Sam E Richardson on him. We need Watson out there instead of Tribune. Also, how much did Charlie Rogers play Thursday night? I think a key matchup versus Tech will be Brackens/Rogers against Jace Amaro, perhaps the best tight end in the Big 12.

    Tribune will learn. I imagine he earned his spot and is the best option, but was probably a little too keyed up and a little jumpy. I agree that getting Watson back is important.

    Rogers was in at Nickel for Brackens. He was out on the field.

    I saw SBR at Hickory Park yesterday and it looked like he could barely walk. He wasn't in a boot or on crutches though so that was a good thing.

    I feel like Rogers takes over for Broomfield when he's gone next year.

    Ran into Sam earlier today at scheels. Said the ankle was feeling "pretty good". He was not noticely limping at all - was walking around just fine. Said the boys are ready to get after tech and put the texas game behind them.

    Good news. I really hope his ankle isn't something that will linger all year

    I'm sure it'll clear up once we have a bye week later in the season.

    Oh, wait...

    Boesen is doing okay. Has a slight MCL sprain. Don't know a time frame for recovery though.

    The good thing is that it seemed pretty perfect for much of the game. If the injury late in the game was just a tweak, he should be fine. If it was a new injury, then we could be in trouble.

    Isn't that the exact same injury as Lalk and Farniok? I think we need to invest in some better knee braces.

    Isn't it the knee braces taht are helping it be a MCL rather than an ACL?

    Not too sure if it's the same or not. These injuries have a huge range in severity. I do know if you're gonna have a knee ligament injured, this is the one you wanna have. Rarely do people have surgery for MCL issues.

    I dont believe boesen was wearing a brace, i could be totally wrong but i dont remember him wearing one and dont remember the time of the game when he was hurt to replay it.

    Could be, I don't know much about the injuries as I've never had one. I was saying it with a hint of sarcasm.

    Nobody has answered my initial question of Jansen Watson's injury status. How bad is he hurt and will he be back for the Tech game?
