Texas RB/WR Daje Johnson to miss Ole Miss game with injury
A key playmaker for the Longhorn offense will miss their home date with Ole Miss after injuring his left ankle.
Sophomore running back-slash-wide receiver Daje Johnson will not play against the Rebels, Mack Brown said Monday, after injuring his left ankle in the Longhorns' 40-21 embarrassment at BYU. Johnson was hurt only three plays into the game when his left leg was pinned by a Cougar defender.
Brown also said that quarterback David Ash is "still being evaluated," per the Associated Press, after suffering injuries to both his head and right shoulder late in the game. Senior Case McCoy would get the start in the event Ash is unable to play.
Johnson's injury will hamper what had been a bright start to the 2013 season. The 5-foot-10 Pflugerville, Texas native scored a pair of long touchdowns vs. New Mexico State in the Horns' 56-7 season-opening victory, and finished with 129 yards from scrimmage (62 rushing, 67 receiving).
The first of those touchdowns comes at the 21-second mark here:
