Although Texas enjoyed a 58-0 win over Rice in Week 3, one of their young and promising cornerbacks suffered a season-ending injury.
True freshman Ishmael Ibraheem will be sidelined for the rest of the season after injuring his knee against Rice. The exact diagnosis is unknown at this point, but it’s severe enough to have his freshman campaign come to an abrupt end.
Wide receiver Troy Omeire and cornerback Jahdae Barron have been ruled out for the Week 4 matchup against Texas Tech as well. All things considered, the Longhorns are fairly healthy as they begin conference play.
Freshman DB Ishmael Ibraheem sustained a knee injury in the Rice game that will sideline him for the remainder of the season.

Along with the injury update, the school released the depth chart for the Texas Tech game on Monday as well. There were no notable changes, although many are hopeful to see offensive lineman Andrej Karic appear as a starter at some point this season.
Jerrin Thompson earned the start at safety over Brenden Schooler against Rice, but the depth chart still shows ‘or’ between the two. As expected, Casey Thompson will make his second career start at quarterback.
