According to Harsin, Leota will undergo surgery on Tuesday due to an injury sustained early in the match against LSU last weekend.
On Saturday, the Tigers will visit No. 2 Georgia in their first away game of the season.
Harsin also confirmed previous reports of the quarterback’s move. Zach Causeway will undergo shoulder surgery at the end of the season. The former Texas A&M player has not played this season.
6ft 4cm and 257lbs, Leota has 17 tackles, including five tackles for a loss and two sacks. He had seven sacks last season after moving from the Northwest.
Auburn switched to a 4-2-5 defense on the depth chart, with Derick Hall as the only starting edge rusher.
“Eku is a big loss,” Harsin said. “He is an emotional leader. He is one of the smartest players we have.”
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound alumnus injured his left ankle in the Tennessee rout against Akron and did not participate in the Vols’ victory over Florida on September 24. Conference) visit No. 25 LSU (4-1, 2-10) on Saturday.
“Let’s see where he is,” Hupel said of Tillman. “He was limited, but today he moved a little. We will continue to monitor how things develop this week and see where we are.”
Heupel also said that the starting quarterback Warren Burrell will miss the remainder of the season following surgery for an upper body injury. Burrell missed the last two games after starting in 22 of 31 games played.
Tillman was Hendon Hookera player’s favorite goal that combines at least one touchdown in eight games with 11 touchdowns. Their combined 10 touchdowns tied for the fourth-most quarterback-receiver combinations in school history in a single season, three short of the record of 13 set by Peyton Manning Marcus Nash in 1997.
A final receiver touchdown gave Tennessee an overtime victory over then No. 17. Pittsburgh, September 10 Tillman had 1,081 yards last season and became the first Vols receiver to hit at least 1,000 yards in a season since Justin Hunter in 2012.
On October 15, Tennessee will host top-ranked Alabama. Hupel said Tillman would have to show that he could work and play at the level that both Tennessee and the recipient wanted.
Austin, Texas. Two opponents, two quarterback injury problems.
Texas and Oklahoma are gearing up for their annual game in Dallas this weekend and are asking big questions in the most important position on the field.
Longhorn Trainer Steve Sarkisian at least has the luxury of two reliable options. His decision on who starts revolves around Quinn Eversa big-armed freshman who recovers the next day after missing three games with a collarbone injury, and Hudson Cardan experienced backup that is steadily improving every week.
coach from Oklahoma Brent Venablesmeanwhile, must prepare his attack for the possibility that the starter Dillon Gabriel won’t be playing after a hard blow to the head that knocked him out of last week’s loss to TCU.
Oklahoma (3-2, 0-2 Big 12) admitted after the game that Gabriel was on the team’s concussion protocol, but the Sooners provided no update Monday on his condition. transfer pitt Davis Beville came on as a substitute for Gabriel after an injury and was able to start.
Texas fans (3-2, 1-1) are looking forward to the return of Euvers to the field. His slingshot right hand and long golden mullet had been little more than a Texan tease so far. The five-star high school rookie from Dallas transferred from Ohio State and won the job against Card, who started his first two games in 2021.
Euvers won his debut over Louisiana-Monroe and threw the ball all over the field in the first quarter in Game 2 against No. 1 Alabama. But Evers was injured late in the first quarter when the tackler hit him hard on the turf.
Sarkisian declined to reveal anything about Euvers, but the freshman was dressed for last week’s 38-20 victory over West Virginia. With Evers watching and ready to play, Card had a career night passing for 303 yards and three touchdowns.
And while most expect Evers to return to the field in the Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma. Sargsyan never said that on Monday.
“My philosophy is pretty simple: play with the guy who I think gives us the best chance of success, whether he’s a starter, understudy, a hot player or not,” Sarkisian said.
The Texas-Oklahoma Cotton Bowl rivalry, with its 50-50 Longhorn-Sooners fan split and wild fluctuations in momentum, can be tough on young quarterbacks, or even any player who hasn’t experienced it. Riding the bus through the huge crowds at the Texas State Fair and running through the stadium tunnel into the pandemonium inside the walls can shake newcomers’ knees.
Texas running back Sesame Robinson thinks Evers can handle it. Evers didn’t seem overwhelmed by the atmosphere of a record crowd of 105,213 when Texas played Alabama, who avoided Austin’s 20-19 victory on a last-minute field goal.
“It’s a huge vibe[in Dallas]to be a part of, but he played in the Alabama game,” Robinson said. “It was a great atmosphere. I don’t think this game will be anything special for him.”
Beville made only two tries in the Sooners uniform before Gabriel was injured. He was 7 of 16 passes for 50 yards in a 55–24 loss to TCU.
Texas has at least two quarterbacks who grew up in the state and are familiar with the passion that surrounds the game. Beville may not know what’s going to happen in Dallas.
“Ultimately, it is my responsibility to ensure that whoever is there is put in a successful position,” Suners Offensive Coordinator. Jeff Lebby Monday said. “Create downtime for the guys and… shoot, again, create a situation where we know what the outcome will be before calling the game.”
