Ehlinger ran for three touchdowns and passed for two scores in the No. 9 Longhorns’ win over Oklahoma last week. He ran twice on Texas’ opening drive against Baylor before game officials forced him to the sideline because of blood. He was handed a towel for his right hand as he went to the sideline.
Ehlinger then jogged to the locker room with a member of the team medical staff. He returned in the second quarter with what appeared to be a bandage, but Texas later said Ehlinger had a shoulder injury that would be evaluated at halftime.
Shane Buechele led the Texas offense in his place.
