Texas’ strongest position group all season has been running back. That changed in a major way against Kansas. The Longhorns lost superstar Bijan Robinson and promising freshman Johnathan Brooks to injuries.
On Tuesday, the Texas running back room received some much-needed good news as Roschon Johnson stated he will play this weekend against West Virginia.
Johnson has been dealing with turf toe and was only set to play against Kansas in case of emergency. He was tasked to finish the game when Robinson and Brooks went down.
Texas RB Roschon Johnson: "I'll be ready to go come Saturday. My body did better than I expected when I went in the game last week. I'm headed up the right track. I'll be good."

Speedster Keilan Robinson should also make his return after missing the Kansas game while going through COVID-19 protocol.
Expect Johnson and Robinson to carry much of the workload for the final two games of the season.
Texas will head to Morgantown for a tough matchup against a strong West Virginia defense in Week 12. The Horns have no more room for error if they want to make a bowl game.
