Trey Hopkins injury: Texas to be without guard for Alamo Bowl

US PRESSWIRE

Texas will be without their top guard, Trey Hopkins, in the Alamo Bowl.

The Texas Longhorns will be going up against the Oregon St. Beavers in the Alamo Bowl, but they will have to do so without starting guard Trey Hopkins. Hopkins is one of the teams top offensive lineman, but he will miss the game with a stress fracture in his lower right leg.

A staple on the offensive line, Hopkins started 11 games in 2012 and 36 in his career at Texas. Hopkins also was named to the Big 12 all-conference second team for this season.

Replacing Hopkins in the starting lineup is likely to be redshirt freshman Sedrick Flowers.

Hopkins is not the only Texas player banged up, as there are four other players who are injured. Those players are defensive end Alex Okafor (ankle), running back Joe Bergeron (shoulder), defensive tackle Ashton Dorsey (concussion) and kicker Anthony Fera (hip).

Despite being injured, all four of those players are expected to play against Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl.
