Longhorns honoring injured teammate

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Fozzy Whittaker got a standing ovation from his Texas teammates when coaches announced he'd miss the rest of the season with a knee injury after a loss to Missouri two weeks ago.

On Thursday night, the Longhorns will offer up a tribute to one of the team's seniors and one of their biggest leaders.

Safety Kenny Vaccaro will wear a No. 2 jersey with no name on the back in honor of Whittaker.

Great to see for one of the guys that's everything right about college football.

Whittaker was on the sideline on crutches wearing a big smile and his own No. 2 jersey, but I'm sure it means a lot for teammates to have him recognized on the field as well.
