Texas temporarily pausing spring football workouts for COVID-19 protocols
Longhorns will hold virtual team meetings on Thursday while on-field practices are pushed back for now
Texas officials announced late Wednesday that “out of abundance of caution” the athletic department is pausing spring football practice due to COVID-19 protocols.
“The Longhorn medical staff will monitor the situation and COVID-19 testing will continue as a plan for some team activities is reviewed,” the school said in a statement.
All scheduled meetings for Thursday moved to virtual, and the Longhorns will not have an on-field practice for several days. They were scheduled to practice Thursday and Saturday.
No other information was released by the school. NCAA rules allow for 15 on-field practices, including the annual spring game scheduled for April 24.
