Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers continues to ramp up his recovery from a shoulder injury with the notion of returning for next week's game against rival Oklahoma, sources told ESPN.
Ewers has dressed for the Longhorns' past two games but is not expected to play against West Virginia on Saturday, sources said, as the quarterback continues to follow the original four-to-six-week timeline that emerged after he was injured in the first quarter against Alabama on Sept. 10. Ewers has been limited in practice this week, sources said.
A return against the Sooners would mark four weeks after Ewers was injured, with sources indicating that is the earliest he would be expected to be available to play.
Ewers has been consistently rehabbing the SC sprain -- a significant injury where the sternum meets the clavicle -- in his nonthrowing shoulder.
