Timeline on Quinn Ewers’ return from injury to be announced Monday

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Multiple reports emerged Sunday about the severity of Quinn Ules’ injury and the Texas Longhorns will be without a frontline quarterback for 2-6 weeks.

University officials said an announcement on how long Ewers will be on hold will be made on Monday.

First reported by ESPN’s Pete Thamel Ewers suffered a sternoclavicular sprain, an injury to the joint where the collarbone meets the sternum, and will be out for 4-6 weeks.

Fox Sports and The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman reveal timeline for Ewers return is 2-3 weeks. Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian told reporters at a Saturday press conference that he didn’t know the Ewers would be leaving until after the MRI results after the 20-19 loss to Alabama . how long.

Ules made a left-footed pass in the first quarter of the game, and after letting go, Alabama’s Dallas Turner tackled him and pushed him to the turf. Turner was asked to pass the ball roughly during the game, and after the game Ules lay down on the Campbell-Williams field as a record 105,213 spectators fell silent.

According to the National Institutes of Health, sternoclavicular injuries are “rare”. The National Institutes of Health indicates that people with a first-degree sprain with all ligaments intact may take 1 to 2 weeks to recover. If the ligament is damaged or torn, the recovery process becomes longer.

Before the injury, Ules had made a good start. He completed 9 of 12 passes for 134 yards and seemed very comfortable with Crimson Tide’s vaunted pass rush.

Jules’ replacement Hudson Card also suffered an ankle injury during the game, but was able to survive. He completed 14 of 22 passes for 158 yards, but it’s unclear how much the injury affected his progress. Former Austin High Maroon Charles Wright was warming up on the court after Card limped off the court, but Card returned to the game.

D’Shawn Jamison, perhaps the best defensive back in Texas and a major contributor as a returner on special teams, injured his ankle after attempting an interception in the second quarter and did not return.

Texas has its third straight home game against UTSA at 7 p.m. Saturday.
