And that's the good news:
Texas freshman quarterback phenom Colt McCoy did not fracture anything in his right shoulder during Texas' 45-42 upset by Kansas State.
He injured his shoulder after scoring on a touchdown run during the Longhorns opening scoring drive in the first quarter.
This is a bye week for Texas, who prepares for their annual clash against in-state rival Texas A&M the morning after Thanksgiving. For the Longhorns, a win assures them of the Big 12 South title and a rematch against Nebraska in the Big 12 title game.
The medical staff will continue to evaluate McCoy to test his strength and pain threshold before clearing him.
Jevan Snead, who played most of the game Saturday, would start if there is long term damage.
