I know many could care less about Herman, but there is obviously a pattern and I am glad that we are not seeing this here anymore.
AUSTIN – Texas’ running backs have a troubling knack for showing up on the injury report. That looms as a serious issue with the season opener against Maryland two weeks away.
Chris Warren returned from a concussion this week, and has looked “really good,” according to coach Tom Herman. Still, the bulldozing junior can’t be considered a stable option given his checkered injury history, despite how good he has looked when healthy.
“The thing he’s doing the best right now is he’s respecting the game,” running backs coach Stan Drayton last week. “He’s been a little bit of a lethargic football player in the past in regards to practice. I think he’s becoming a better practice player, and I think he needs to continue to do that for the rest of his career – play the game on the practice field.”
