I'm going to go out on a limb and say that when Christian Scott is an old man reflecting on his college football career, 2011 won't be the highlight. The season started with Scott being suspended for the first three games of the season after attacking a woman who was trying to repossess his car. Scott was finally able to get back on the field on Saturday in Texas' win over Iowa State, but it's going to be a while before he sees any more action.
Scott injured his right wrist during the game and according to Texas trainer Kenny Boyd, Scott is out indefinitely.
Which means the Texas secondary is getting pretty thin. Scott was a backup safety, but with fellow safety Nolan Brewster announcing that he was giving up football last week, that leaves the Longhorns with a pair of freshman behind Blake Gideon and Kenny Vaccaro.
Mykkele Thompson and Sheroid Evans are now behind Gideon and Vaccaro on the depth chart, as is sophomore Adrian Phillips who has seen time at cornerback in the nickel package this season.
It's not exactly the best position to be in with the Longhorns having to face Landry Jones, Ryan Broyles and the Oklahoma passing attack this weekend.
