For what it’s worth, Worthy is still following the Longhorns on the platform, and his Twitter still mentions the team in his bio. Though, the wideout isn’t particularly active on the account.
Worthy had a productive performance Friday in the 38-27 win over Baylor, hauling in seven catches for 62 yards. He’s also the team’s leading receiver with 53 catches for 676 yards and nine touchdowns – all three team-highs on the season.
Texas (6-2, Big-12) will await the outcome of No. 12 Kansas State vs. Kansas. A K-State (6-2, Big-12) loss will earn the Longhorns a spot in the Big 12 Championship against No. 4 TCU, while a win will force Texas out of the championship game entirely.
Steve Sarkisian provides injury update on Cole Hutson after being carted off
Texas‘ true freshman right guard Cole Hutson had to be carted off the field with under 90 seconds remaining in the first half against Baylor Friday after teammate Andre Karicfell onto his right knee during the Longhorns’ final drive of the half.
Head coach Steve Sarkisian updated the status of the standout freshman following the game.
“He’s going to get out, MRI and all that today,” Sarkisian said after the game Friday. “We’ll see. It’s a lower leg deal, so we’ll see what the significance of that is.”
The results of the MRI are unknown as of this report, but it was bad enough that the Longhorns’ medical team had to take a cart to get him off the field in the first place. Sarkisian even left the sideline to check on Hutson – never a good sign for any player.
A miscommunication on the offensive line led to a sack of quarterback Quinn Ewers on the subsequent play, which stalled what was a fairly sloppy drive after Hutson’s injury.
Still, Texas came out of the regular season finale victorious, defeating the Bears 38-27 after a late fourth quarter flurry separated the Longhorns from their in-state conference foe. Entering halftime trialing 19-17, Texas would outscore Baylor 21-8 in the second half en route to victory.
