Earlier: We’re already a week into the college football season, but apparently the great Charlie Strong purge of 2014 is not yet over. According to a report by Orangebloods.com’s Dustin McComas, two Longhorns offensive linemen, including one starter, have been kicked off the team.

Estelle started at left tackle in week one against North Texas according to the Texas participation report, while Harrison was set to return from a suspension this week. Harrison played in seven games for the Longhorns in 2013.
Texas will host BYU on Saturday, September 6. The Cougars defeated the Longhorns 40-21 last season.
