Texas will be without two more players this weekend.

According to multiple reports Wednesday night, Texas coach Charlie Strong has suspended two offensive tackles, Desmond Harrison and Kennedy Estelle, for the BYU game.

Harrison had just been reinstated to the team on Monday after serving a one-game suspension. Estelle, meanwhile, was suspended for the Alamo Bowl last season for academic reasons.

Whatever the reasons for the latest suspensions now, the news leaves Texas with an offensive line short on experience. The Longhorns lost senior center Dominic Espinosa for the season thanks to a fractured ankle suffered in the opener, and now the Texas offensive line's most experienced starter is guard Sedrick Flowers. When he lines up against BYU on Saturday it will be the third start of his career.

Texas also lost quarterback David Ash and will start Tyrone Swoopes this week.

No matter the situation, the message remains pretty clear in Austin. You either get on board with Charlie Strong's program, or you aren't going to play, consequences be damned.
