Texas loses Christian Scott indefinitely

Posted by Tom Fornelli

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.

Texas safety giving up football

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Nolan Brewster is a backup safety for the Texas Longhorns who suffered a concussion during Texas' win against UCLA last weekend. It was not the first time Brewster has suffered a concussion, as he says he's had a history of them along with post-traumatic migraines since he was in high school. This latest concussion, though, Brewster is hoping it will be his last.

The Longhorns announced on Monday that Brewster was giving up football.

“We’re disappointed for Nolan, and I know it was a really difficult decision for him and his family,” said head coach Mack Brown. “I’ve known him since he was a little kid and know he loves this place and playing football for Texas, so this is a tough deal, but his health is the most important thing.”

Brewster had played in all three games for the Longhorns this year, and has played in 30 games in his career. Mack Brown has said that Brewster will remain a part of the Texas program and help the staff.

Brewster is the son of former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster.
