Texas quarterback Colt McCoy said he will be fine after suffering a stinger in the shoulder and neck area in the 45-42 loss at Kansas State on Saturday, according to a statement released by the team.
“I’m really disappointed I wasn’t able to be in there helping my teammates, but I’m going to be fine,” McCoy said in the statement. “We have a great staff of trainers and doctors, and I’ve already started working with them to get my injury taken care of. The off-week couldn’t come at a better time. I’ll do everything it takes to get back.”
Team trainer Kenny Boyd said McCoy will continue to be evaluated during the bye week.
“After the injury, Colt experienced shoulder weakness and neck pain,” Boyd said. “When evaluating injuries, we look for return of normal strength and a reduction of pain before putting a player back into the game. Colt wasn’t released to play because his symptoms, including strength, did not improve.”
Senior offensive lineman Justin Blalock injured his left knee during the game and also will continue to be evaluated.
