Texas quarterback David Ash suffered a hamstring strain during workouts Friday.
After reports surfaced Friday afternoon that David Ash, Texas' likely starting quarterback, suffered a hamstring injury during workouts, there was plenty of concern among Longhorn fans. Those fans can take a deep breath after Texas confirmed the injury was only a strain and Ash is considered to be day-to-day.
Texas is confirming that QB David Ash did strain a hamstring but says he'd be only "day to day." #ut— kbohls (@kbohls) July 28, 2012
Ash will enter fall camp in a quarterback competition with Case McCoy. While Ash is considered to be the favorite, it is still unknown how or if the injury will impact his participation in fall camp. While a strain is certainly better than a tear or another significant injury, hamstring issues can linger for weeks.
Texas opens its season on Sept. 1 against Wyoming.
