Texas WR Jaxon Shipley questionable for UCLA game due to head injury

Wednesday September 10th, 2014

Texas wide receiver Jaxon Shipley is questionable to play in Saturday's game against 12th-ranked UCLA because of a head injury, the Associated Press reports.

Further details about Shipley's injury were not disclosed, and the disclosure of his playing status came from a Texas trainer.

Shipley, the younger brother of former Texas All-American receiver Jordan Shipley, was injured in Texas' 41-7 loss to BYU last Saturday. Jaxon Shipley has led the Longhorns in receiving in each of the past two seasons and has 11 catches for 79 yards through two games in 2014.

Texas is already without starting quarterback David Ash, who is out indefinitely due to concussion symptoms, and starting center Dominic Espinosa, who is done for the year with a broken ankle.
