Texas Star LB DeMarvion Overshown Diagnosed With Concussion

Texas has lost one of its best defenders in the first half of their matchup with Oklahoma State

The Texas Longhorns entered their Saturday matchup with Oklahoma State, hoping to get back on track after a disastrous showing against Oklahoma in the Red River Showdown last week. 

Unfortunately for the Horns, those hopes took a significant hit in the first quarter, when Texas star linebacker DeMarvion Overshown was forced to leave the game with an injury. 

Already shorthanded after the loss of Jack/Edge linebacker Jacoby Jones following his injury against Oklahoma last weekend, Texas now loses another starter in the front seven. 

Overshown was able to jog off of the field under his own power but was immediately taken to the locker room for further evaluation for a concussion. 

After undergoing concussion protocol, Overshown emerged from the locker room in street clothes and sit the rest of the game.

In replacement of Overshown, Texas turned to back-up linebackers Jaylan Ford who would lead the team in tackles with 12 for the game.
