If you were to ask a coach what the most important thing about spring practice is, it's a good bet they would tell you getting through it with everybody healthy. Unfortunately for Texas and Mack Brown, that will not be the case this year.

The school announced offensive tackle Josh Cochran fractured his leg in practice on Wednesday.

Cochran will miss the rest of spring practice but the Longhorns are hopeful he'll be back in time for fall camp.

After starting seven games as a freshman in 2011 Cochran started all 13 games for the Longhorns in 2012. He spent 11 games at right tackle and two at left tackle.
