Texas came out of the season opener against Louisiana without any major injuries. Junior Angilau was the only one to leave the game with a problem.
Head coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed the guard would be good to go Saturday against Arkansas. Angilau is expected to keep his place as the starting right guard and was at the position on the depth chart released Monday afternoon.
Flipping to the not-so-positive news, two players are in danger of missing the trip to Fayetteville.
Sarkisian said tight end Jared Wiley would be a game-time decision. He has been dealing with a shoulder injury throughout fall camp and only got a few snaps against Louisiana.
True freshman Gunnar Helm stepped up in his place as the H-back tight end. Neither player recorded a reception.
Wide receiver Tory Omeire was the only non-season-ending injury to miss out last week. It sounds like he will continue to miss time with a knee injury.
After tearing his ACL in fall camp last year, Omeire seemed to retweak the injury during the open practice in late August.
“Troy [Omeire] is rehabbing, he’s running, he looks good,” said Sarkisian. “Hopefully, we get him back sooner rather than later but we definitely want to make sure he is in the right space physically to do so.”
