David Ash Injury: Projected Texas Starting QB Suffers Hamstring Injury

According to multiple sources, projected Texas Longhorns starting quarterback David Ash suffered a hamstring injury in workouts on Friday. Texas had multiple problems at the quarterback position ever since Colt McCoy left for the NFL a few years ago, and last year they used Ash and Case McCoy with limited success.

The length of Ash's injury is unknown at this point, but it has to be a setback due to the lack of success the team has had. However, a hamstring injury can possibly linger for a long period of time, so Ash needs to make sure he is completely healed before he exerts himself too much in fall camp.

Texas begins fall camp in just over a week, and if Ash is to miss time it will give an opportunity for McCoy to handle the first team offense, and possibly take over the starting quarterback position.
