Texas Longhorns quarterback David Ash will miss the rest of the season due to persistent concussion symptoms, according to Kirk Bohls of the Austin-American Statesman.

Ash started the season at QB for Texas this year, but was sidelined with a concussion after 2 games and only made it through one half of his first game back against Kansas State before re-injuring his head.

Ash is expected to be ready for spring practice, and will apply for a medical redshirt for this season, which would give him two more years of eligibility at Texas.
