University of Texas quarterback David Ash has fractured his left foot and will miss the remainder of spring practices, according to ESPN's Max Olson.

Ash began last season as the Longhorns' starting QB after a successful 2012 campaign, but missed 10 games with concussion symptoms. He has since petitioned the NCAA for a medical redshirt, which would give him two remaining years of eligibility.

The junior is expected to be healthy in time for fall practices, but the injury leaves the team with only one scholarship quarterback, sophomore Tyrone Swoopes. The team will also have tight end Miles Onyegbule taking snaps under center, and serve as the number two quarterback at the team's spring game on April 19.
