Texas RBs running thin after injury

Texas was already banged up at running back.

A potentially serious leg injury to Fozzy Whittaker could put the position in further jeopardy.

Whittaker, a senior, went down in the first quarter and was attended to by trainers before leaving the game without putting weight on the leg.

Texas backs Malcolm Brown (turf toe) and Joe Bergeron (hamstring) were already dealing with injuries and may be forced into emergency duty.

Jeremy Hills is Texas' only other running back available for contributions.

Texas leads Missouri 3-0 midway through the first quarter.
