Texas QB Ehlinger being evaluated for head injuries

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger was held out of practice Sunday and is being evaluated by team doctors for a head injury.

The school announced the move Sunday night. Ehlinger played the entire game Saturday in a 13-10 overtime loss against No. 11 Oklahoma State that ended when he threw an interception in the end zone. Ehlinger had been tackled hard on a run two plays before.

Texas did not detail the nature of the injury or say when it happened. Texas did not say when he might return.

Former Longhorns quarterback David Ash had his career cut short in 2014 after multiple episodes of concussion symptoms.

Ehlinger has passed for 1,419 yards with six touchdowns and four interceptions for Texas (3-4). He is also a physical runner who has rushed for 261 yards as the offense has become more dependent on his legs to move the ball.
