Texas’ Shipley out after suffering hamstring injury

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Senior wide receiver Jaxon Shipley suffered a hamstring injury in practice on Monday. No timetable has been set for his return.

Shipley is the Longhorns top returning receiver. He recorded 56 catches for 589 and one touchdown in 2013, and ranks eighth all-time at Texas in receptions.

The Longhorns are already thin at receiver following the dismissals of Kendal Sanders and Montrel Meander. The two were kicked off the team following sexual assault charges.

Cozy confines

Charlie Strong confirmed coaches are living in the dorms alongside the players.

When asked about his living conditions, Strong said “there are no suites over there, there’s two beds and the bathrooms are down the hall.”

Strong said the two weeks of side-by-side living will help not only build relationships between players and coaches, but young players with older players who might not normally interact away from the football facility.
