Thie Texas Longhorns were already thin on offense going into the Missouri game and are now even more so with what appears to be a serious leg injury to running back Fozzy Whittaker. Freshmen Malcolm Brown and Joe Bergeron were already sidelined with various injuries which leaves junior Jeremy Hills as the primary running back. Coming into today's game Hills had 11 carries on the season. 

In addition to the running back injuries the Longhorns are short  their top receiver Jaxon Shipley who is out with a knee injury. The response has been an even more anemic Longhorn attack than usual. Midway through the third quarter Texas has 3 points, 62 rushing yards and 90 passing yards and trails Missouri 17-3. They've also gone back to rotating quarterbacks.
