Texas Football: Texas Cornerback Doubtful for Baylor Game

Chris Dukes

Just as it looked to be at full strength in the secondary, Texas football looks to be making plans to play without cornerback Anthony Cook when it travels to Waco to take on No. 12 Baylor. 

Cook suffered a sprain to a ligament in his knee during the Longhorns' 23-21 loss on the road in Ames to Iowa State. 

Herman compared the injury to the one Caden Sterns suffered earlier in the season, which held the Texas safety out for four weeks. 

The good news for Texas is his backup D'Shawn Jamison has plenty of experience. Jamison started last week in the place of Jalen Green, who sat out the first half with a suspension. 

Jamison, who has started seven games during his Texas career, came up with his fourth interception of the season in that contest. 

Kobe Boyce will likely also see action in the cornerback rotation. Boyce has started five games in his career and has been a prominent member of the secondary as players have shifted around due to injuries all season. 

Baylor comes into the game 9-1 off its first loss of the season against Oklahoma. The Bears led the Sooners 28-3 before Oklahoma rallied to score 31of the next 34 points and pull off a 34-31 victory. 

The Bears rank No. 38 in the country in passing offense with 263.6 yards per game. 

Texas and Baylor are scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff in Waco. The Bears opened as a four-point favorite, but the spread has risen to 5.5 as of the time of this article according to sportsline.com.
