New Texas kicker already down with injury

By David Ubben

Former Penn State kicker Anthony Fera has only been at Texas a week, but his move to the Longhorns has taken an unfavorable turn.

Fera aggravated a groin injury and won't be practicing. There's no timetable for his return, Texas announced on Friday.

Not what you want to see if you're the Longhorns, who traditionally don't announce injuries unless they sideline players for substantial periods of time.

Fera hadn't played a down yet, but he might have been a great replacement for Justin Tucker at kicker, and might have taken over the punting duties, too.

Eventually that might be the case, but for now, it looks like a sizeable setback for Fera.
