Malik Jefferson, Dylan Haines out for Baylor game

Posted December 3rd, 2015

Story highlights
  • Texas will be without two defensive starters for Saturday's game against Baylor.

Texas coach Charlie Strong told the Longhorn Network Thursday night that neither linebacker Malik Jefferson nor safety Dylan Haines will be able to play Saturday against Baylor.

Both were injured Thanksgiving night in a loss to Texas Tech.

Baylor still is the top offense in the country, so the Bears would be difficult for Texas to deal with even at full strength. However, Baylor is down to third-string quarterback Chris Johnson. Top running back Shock Linwood also could still be feeling the effects of a sprained ankle. Coach Art Briles was unsure how much Linwood would play against the Longhorns.
