Texas QB Ehlinger in concussion protocol, unsure for Baylor

By  | 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is in a concussion protocol and will be evaluated over several days to see if he can play this week against Baylor.

Ehlinger was held out of practice Sunday after playing the entire game in a loss Saturday to No. 11 Oklahoma State. The game ended when Ehlinger threw an interception on a pass he floated into the end zone. He had been tackled hard on the sideline a few plays earlier.

Coach Tom Herman said Monday that Ehlinger started showing symptoms of a problem after the game.

Ehlinger has started five games, three of which have gone to overtime. The freshman is a tough runner with a physical style that draws contact, and his running has become a heavy component in an offense that has struggled to score.
