Texas punter Ryan Bujcevski left the Longhorns' 37-27 loss to TCU with an injury, later confirmed to be a broken collarbone by Longhorns head coach Tom Herman in his press conference. 

Bujcevski was having a stellar season for the Longhorns after replacing Ray Guy Award winner (and cousin) Michael Dickson, who departed last season for the NFL. 

He was averaging 45.3 yards per punt with a long of 57 and one inside the 20-yard line. He appeared to suffer the injury during a fake punt that extended a Texas drive early in the second half when he converted a fourth-and-one. 

Bujcevski - a 6-foot, 180-pound sophomore from Sydney, Australia - was replaced by  backup kicker and punter Chris Naggar, who boomed a 54-yarder as his only kick on the day. A 6-foot-1, 195-pound junior from Arlington, Naggar will likely assume kicking duties for the rest of the year for Texas as the Longhorns hit the home stretch of their season.

The Longhorns are 5-3 on the year following the road loss to TCU. They will be on a bye next week before returning home to take on Kansas State. The Wildcats will come in with a ton of momentum after knocking off Oklahoma Saturday in a 48-41 upset.
