Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is progressing “on schedule,” according to his head coach Tom Herman.

Ehlinger exited Texas’ game against Baylor last weekend on the team’s first possession with a shoulder injury, which was later reported to be a sprained AC joint. The plan was for Ehlinger to rest and rehab this week with Texas on a bye, and then it would see whether the sophomore would be available for the team’s game against Oklahoma State.

Herman said that things are progressing well for Ehlinger so far.

The Longhorns have won six in a row since their loss to Maryland in the season opener. Ehlinger is a big reason why. He has passed for 1,534 yards, 11 touchdowns and two interceptions this season, while rushing for six scores.

Texas would love to have Ehlinger available against the Cowboys, but it will also prepare for backup Shane Buechele to make the start in case Ehlinger is unable to play.
