Texas QB Shane Buechele Went To Locker Room After Taking Huge Hit

Texas QB Shane Buechele took a huge hit while scrambling and was forced to head to the locker room for further evaluation.

After sustaining a brutal hit from the Kansas defense while scrambling in the second quarter, Texas QB Shane Buechele was forced to head to the locker room for more thorough medical evaluation.

In the meantime, senior Tyrone Swoopes will take over the quarterbacking duties. Swoopes has only completed five passes on the year. Let's hope Buechele's injury was nothing serious. Update: Good news. Buechele's injury is nothing too serious, and he's been cleared to re-enter the game. Any time there's a potential injury to the head or neck, it's best to take precautions, and it looks like that's what the case was here.

Buechele is 11-of-17 on the day with a touchdown pass and two interceptions.

The Longhorns trail Kansas 10-7 at halftime.
