Whittaker questionable for Longhorns' opener

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

Texas running back Fozzy Whittaker is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe with an injury to his right knee, Texas athletic trainer Kenny Boyd said.

Whittaker was expected to challenge for a starting position coming into training camp. But he struggled with a knee injury throughout camp and Vondrell McGee has taken the starting position.

Whittaker was hampered by injuries during his freshman season in 2008, seeing action in seven of the Longhorns' 13 games. He played in Texas' final five games after missing six of the Longhorns' first eight games.
