It's the stretch run toward the college football season. All coaches have to do now is get their players to the season ready to play and without significant injury. It looks like Demarco Cobbs, according to a reporter with the Dallas Morning-News.and Co. didn't manage to do that in the case of linebacker
Texas sophomore linebacker Demarco Cobbs sustained a right forearm fracture in practice Tuesday and will be sidelined indefinitely.
Keep in mind that Texas, which is looking to rebound from a 5-7 record, lost defensive coordinator Will Muschamp to Florida, replacing him with Mississippi State's from Texas coaches and fans after moving from the secondary to the linebacking corps.. Diaz has also moved several players, including Cobbs, around this year. Cobbs was getting praise
Meanwhile, Texas is losing its top two linebackers (in terms of sacks) from last year. Sam Acho and Eddie Jones accounted for 15 of 31 sacks. So a little depth -- the kind that Cobbs would have provided if he were still healthy -- couldn't have hurt.
